Come celebrate what’s good in CanLIt with these three warm, wildly talented readers and their colour-coordinated books! 🌸🔵

Note: There will be no Pivot Wednesday, Jan 31st.

Jeff Kirby’s newest is She’s Having a Doris Day (Knife From Book, 2017). Earlier chapbooks include Simple Enough, Cock & Soul, Bob’s boy, and The world is fucked and sometimes beautiful. Their work appears in numerous anthologies beginning with the letter Q, and most recently online at The Rusty Toque, Matrix Magazine and bandcamp/jeffkirby. Kirby is the owner/publisher of knife | fork | book.
Melanie Mah is a writer in Toronto who was born and raised in Alberta. Her debut novel, The Sweetest One, won the 2017 Trillium Book Award, and her work has been published in Prism International and Ricepaper. She is currently at work on an intergenerational memoir.
Sam Shelstad is a writer from London, Ontario. His stories have appeared in The New Quarterly, Prism International, and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, among others. He was longlisted for the 2014 CBC Short Story Prize. Of his debut collection Cop House (Nightwood Editions, 2017), Quill and Quire said, “reads like something out of George Saunders. It is precisely this blend of humour and pathos that give Shelstad’s stories their disarming power.” Sam lives in Toronto.
