Adam Gregory is an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto.

Ben Ladouceur won the 2012 Earle Birney Poetry Prize. Look for his first full-length collection of poetry, Otter (Coach House Books).

Laura Ritland is completing her M.A. in Creative Writing at the University of Toronto, where she is a Junior Fellow of Massey College and the Editor in Chief of echolocation. She won The Malahat Review’s 2014 Far Horizons Poetry Award.

Bardia Sinaee’s work recently appeared in the Lemon Hound Emerging Toronto Poets folio. Anstruther Press is publishing his first chapbook, Blue Night Express, later this year.

Jess Taylor has been published in a variety of online and print journals. Last fall, Anstruther Press released her first full-length poetry chapbook, Never Stop. She was the recipient of the Gold 2013 National Magazine Award in Fiction for her short story, ‘Paul,’ the title story for her debut story collection, Pauls, to be released by BookThug this October. Jess is also the fiction editor of Little Brother Magazine.

Fan Wu is a marionette moved by idle hands. This year, his dreams have been plump and so the numbness of waking life is always slithering out of memory.
