Oana Avasilichioaei
We, Beasts (Wolsak and Wynn, 2012) won the Quebec Writers’ Federation’s A. M. Klein Prize for Poetry in 2012. In We, Beasts, textual architecture, orality and multilingualism are covered. In her book, feria: a poempark (Wolsak and Wynn, 2008), geography and public space are explored. And in Expeditions of a Chimæra (BookThug, 2009) co-authored with Erín Moure, Avasilichioaei engages with translation and collaborative performance. Avasilichioaei has also translated two volumes of poetry: one from Romanian by Nichita Stănescu, Occupational Sickness (BuschekBooks, 2006) and one from French by Louise Cotnoir, The Islands (Wolsak and Wynn, 2011).

Christine McNair's first book Conflict (Book Thug 2012) was shortlisted for the ReLit award, as well as the Archibald Lampman award, and the City of Ottawa Book Award. She has previously been shortlisted for the Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry. She works as a book doctor in Ottawa.
