1998 - Message in a Bottle: The Literature of Small Islands

In collaboration with the Institute of Island Studies, the University of Prince Edward Island’s English Department, and the LMMI, this was the first scholarly international conference devoted to the investigation of the literature of small islands, with almost 60 presentations from international scholars and creative writers. One hundred of the 250 people who attended the conference participated in the Montgomery sessions which looked at Montgomery's treatment of islands – virtual, metaphorical, and physical - in her writing.

Message in a Bottle: The Literature of Small Islands (Eds. Laurie Brinklow, Frank Ledwell and Jane Ledwell) contains partial proceedings of the conference, including two papers on Montgomery.
