An Interview: Created Here

Summer has got me seriously behind the 8 ball on news, but it’s high time I shared a lovely interview I got to have with my good friend and New Brunswick arts aficionado Marie-Hélène Morrell. Marie-Hélène is the founder of Created Here, a directory working to catalogue and connect creative-types from my home province. Her site is gorgeous, and her work is vitally important.

In June, she and I had a back-and-forth e-mail conversation that covered everything from day jobs to inspiration. Find it here or by clicking the logo below. Glam photographs by the very talented Chris Loh.

In Review – The Year of Our Beautiful Exile

The-Year-of-Our-Beautiful-ExileThe best thing about reviewing is coming across new favourites, and I have a feeling Monica Kidd will achieve such status for me. I reviewed her latest book The Year of Our Beautiful Exile for Arc, and you can read everything I thought about it here.

Also, if you’re one of those people who pays close attention to the feel of a book in your hands, this one is a winner. Gaspereau Press makes such beautiful objets d’art.
