Everyone has heard the news and it’s inspired the same bookish panic in all of us. A strike is brewing in the hearts, minds and on contract negotiation tables of Canadian postal workers. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, the town criers have been using words like ‘looming,’ which has us a little worried. But we’re forging on the only way we know how – a massive ebook sale! For the month of July, all of our ebooks will be 25% off.

We're excited to announce that Emily M. Keeler will assume the role of series editor for the Exploded Views nonfiction series. Keeler, who takes over the series editor role originated by Jason McBride, is the founding editor of Little Brother, an award-winning literary magazine, and is formerly the books editor of Canada's National Post

Congratulations to Jordan Tannahill, Weyni Mengesha, and Patrick Lavender for their excellent showing at the 2016 Dora Mavor Moore Awards

Reviewing Christian Bök's The Xenotext: Book 1 for American Scientist, Michael Leong calls the book 'at once rigorously scientific and rigorously literary.' He goes on to write that 'Bök's work is an important bridge not only between conservative formalists and cutting-edge conceptualists but between poetic and scientific communities.

Art and poetry share a long and rich history, from the visual poetry experiments of the modernist avant-garde to the association of the Beat Generation with artists like Andy Warhol. Today, this conversation continues, with artists and poets borrowing freely from one another and often active in both areas.
