Katia Grubisic
Katia Grubisic is a writer, editor and translator whose work has appeared in various publications including Arc, The Fiddlehead, The Globe and Mail, Grain, The Spoon River Poetry Review and Prairie Fire. She has acted on the editorial boards of Qwerty and of The Fiddlehead and is currently an editor for The New Quarterly, for whom she recently edited a Montréal issue. She has recently been invited to teach poetry at John Abbott College, the University of New Brunswick, St Mary's University and by the League of Canadian Poets. She has been awarded the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick's poetry prize, and has been shortlisted for the CBC Literary Awards, the Arc poetry contest, the National Magazine Awards and the Descant / Winston Collins for poetry. Her first collection, What if red ran out, was published in 2008 by Goose Lane Editions. Dubbed "rich and whimsical" by The Globe and Mail, the book was shortlisted for the Quebec Writers' Federation AM Klein Prize for Poetry

Stephen Stamp
Stephen Stamp grew up in Peterborough, Ontario, then spent much of his adult life on the west coast, in Victoria and North Vancouver. He's back in Peterborough and has decided he's okay with winter after all.

Stephen does hockey commentary on television, but hasn't yet written any hockey poems. Perhaps they're coming. Perhaps those two parts of his life will remain separate. What we can be sure of is that Stephen remains among the tallest poets in Canada.

Kate Story
Kate Story is a writer, performer, and choreographer originally from Newfoundland. She creates performance works characterized by elements of dance, theatre and performance art, often in collaboration with artists from other disciplines. She has been twice nominated (2004 and 2006) for the Ontario Arts Council's K.M. Hunter Artists Award, and in 2005 (as part of Peterborough's centennial celebrations) she was named one of the region's 100 most important performing artists. Her first novel Blasted came out with Killick Press in the fall of 2008 to favourable reviews. Her short fiction has been published in Broken Pencil, Kiss Machine, and TakeOut.
