Volume 9, released in spring 2018, features new work by Megan Hunter, Eliza Robertson, Zadie Smith and Heidi Sopinka.

Megan Hunter lives in Cambridge with her young family. She has a BA in English Literature from Sussex University, and an MPhil in English Literature: Criticism and Culture from Jesus College, Cambridge. Her poetry has been shortlisted for the Bridport Prize. The End We Start From, her indelible and elemental debut novel, is lyrical vision of the strangeness and beauty of new motherhood, and a tale of endurance in the face of unimaginable change.

Eliza Robertson was born in Vancouver and grew up on Vancouver Island. She attended the University of Victoria and the University of East Anglia, where she received the 2011 Man Booker Scholarship. In 2013, she won the Commonwealth Short Story Prize and was a finalist for the CBC Short Story Prize and Journey Prize. Her first story collection, Wallflowers, was shortlisted for the East Anglia Book award and selected as a New York Times Editors’ Choice. Unfolding between the wild freedoms of British Columbia and the glittering beaches of California, Demi-Gods explores a girl’s attempt to forge a path of her own choosing in a world where female independence is suspect.

Zadie Smith is the award-winning author of the novels White Teeth, The Autograph Man, On Beauty, NW and Swing Time, as well as a novella, The Embassy of Cambodia, and a collection of essays, Changing My Mind. She was listed as one of Granta's 20 Best Young British Novelists in 2003 and again in 2013. With the easy intimacy of a local and the piercing clarity of an outsider, Feel Free casts a sharp critical eye over the creative luminaries that have shaped our world: from J. G. Ballard to Karl Ove Knausgaard, Orson Welles to Charlie Kaufman, Joni Mitchell to Beyonce, and far beyond.

Heidi Sopinka has worked as a bush cook in the Yukon, a travel-guide writer in Southeast Asia, a helicopter pilot, a magazine editor, a columnist at The Globe and Mail, and is a designer and co-founder of Horses Atelier. Her writing has won a National Magazine Award and has appeared in numerous publications, including Toronto Life, Flare, Chatelaine, and The Believer. The Dictionary of Animal Languages is a novel of love, longing, and art set in interwar Paris.
