We get to the party. We say hello to our hosts. We take off our coats. The party is crowded. We fight our way through to the kitchen. We load our plates with food. We sit in a corner. There are a lot of people. There are mathematicians and physicists ...
We spoke to Sonnet L’Abbé, our poetry judge, about the two books of poetry she is working on, and her advice for Room's contest applicants.
In honour of Black History Month, Room highlights some amazing female black Canadian writers. We profile Dionne Brand, Shani Mootoo, Esi Edugyan and others.
To help you with your #readwomen2014 resolution, Room has compiled a list of fourteen books by Canadian women that we think you should pick up in 2014.
