Growing up as one of the only Anglophones in a series of Francophone schools on the North Shore of Montréal, Caeli was destined to become a translator, or at least, that’s what everyone always told her. It wasn’t until her quarter-life crisis, when she chewed over what career path to follow, that she finally decided … Read more

Category: Bloggers

Thomas was born in Québec, where he grew up, went to school, did a variety of not-always-so-interesting things and decided to become a writer. The downside of this decision was that it would be years before his chosen vocation would be known to the public—Thomas was for a long time a writer in his eyes … Read more

Born of an improbable meeting of northerners—one from Ontario and the other from Quebec—who’d settled at the midway point between their respective homes, Geneviève grew up on the banks of the Ottawa River, equidistant from the federal capital and the Quebec border.

It was in January 2015 that Fanny Jane joined the Edgaristas, an almost superhuman (or maybe just over-motivated) species that occupies its spare time with 250-km relay races, creative writing and beer keg lifting. Her relatives, being familiar with her secret sensitive side and her less-secret touchy side, sometimes wonder what could have pushed her … Read more

At the age of four, when her mother admitted that she couldn’t explain the meaning of the word “ecstatic,” Ingrid decided that words would hold no secrets for her. Thus began her rampage through the family bookshelves and municipal library as she tried to quench her thirst for reading. In 2008, she was awarded first … Read more
