Collected here are many of the newest and best Montreal writers published over the past few years. English writing in Montreal has had the distinction of being isolated from the rest of the country, left to stew in its own creative juices, with very few English-language presses and little support for English work. Consequently it has developed along alternate paths and has created its own vibrant culture. The spoken-word community in particular has become a source of envy outside the city. The writing in this anthology, international in scope, reflects the migratory nature of the Anglophone community while drawing inspiration from the city itself. Some of these writers have only a handful of publication credits but put out chapbooks and perform constantly around town at a variety of impressive cabaret events. Others have a couple of books under their belt. Not always concerned with conventional styles, many of them are on the cusp of notoriety. This anthology will introduce a wider audience to this latest Montreal Renaissance. Included are: Catherine Kidd, Corey Frost, Billy Mavreas, Sue Elmslie, Tess Fragoulis, Anne Stone, Heather O'Neill, Liane Keightley, Ian Ferrier, Meg Sircom, Masarah Van Eyck, Lydia Eugene, Andy Brown, Valerie Joy Kalynchuk, Dana Bath, Jonathan Goldstein, Lance Blomgren, Yvette Poorter, David McGimpsey, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Dean Irvine, and Susan Gillis.
