canthius is not your run-of-the-mill literary journal. As evidenced by the editorial, it is a careful and considered publication that, amongst other things, addresses the gender gap in Canadian publishing, and alongside its contributors, explores what it means to be both a woman and a writer. 

I feel privileged not only to know the editors Claire Farley, and Cira Nickel as friends, but also that they thought of me when they were compiling this very impressive first issue of canthius. And what an extra-special surprise to see the cover art by Winnie Truong, another inspirational Canadian woman taking the world by storm. 

canthius is available to order through their website. Issue 01 features writing by myself, Sharon Thesen, Sonia di Placido, Ruth Daniell, Tanis MacDonald, Nina Murray, Sara Jane Strickland, Deirdre Maultsaid, Jen Currin, Megan Paranich, Kristen Smith, and Susie Winters.
