Rachel Rose, a General Governor’s Literary Award-nominated poet, has put together an incredible debut collection of short fiction with The Octopus Has Three Hearts, which features an intriguing cast of human outcasts who find solace in the animal world.
Norma Dunning is the Danata Gleed Award-winning author of three books, including, most recently, Tainna: The Unseen Ones, a collection that draws on both lived experience and cultural memory to illuminate the Inuit experience beyond the tundra. Modern-day Inuk characters in the Canadian South must rely on their wits, artistic talent, senses of humour and spirituality for survival.
Marion Quednau, who won the Books in Canada First Novel Award, is the author of Sunday Drive to Gunclub Road, stories that explore the hazy line that delineates truth; tales that Steven Heighton describes as “well-built little machines that pull us in and hold us there until they’ve left their mark.”
Katherine Fawcett is the author of the bestselling collection, The Swan Suit, which reads like a collection of feminist folklore for contemporary times, playing with the various the layers of selves we present to the world.
