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.
