The Summer Issue of our seasonal magazine is online, featuring a 48-Hour Interview with Diane Miljours of the Governor General's Literary Awards and Elana Rabinovitch of the Scotiabank Giller Prize; an interactive map of literary Toronto and a conversation with the map's creators, Marcelo Hong and Matt Wiechec; and essays by Brooke Ford and Melanie Janisse.

  • In "Eye on the Prize," our latest 48-Hour Interview, Diane Miljours and Elana Rabinovitch talk about their career paths, writing and the pleasure of overseeing two of Canada's biggest literary awards.
  • Want to know where Toronto's literary hot spots are? We talk to designers Marcelo Hong and Matt Wiechec who take us on a tour of literary Toronto with an interview and their interactive map in "We Were Randomly Assigned Literature."
  • "The often-cited query that hums just beneath the surface of publishing reads something like this: What will the future of the book look like, how will technology shape and reshape what we read and how we read it?" Brooke Ford contemplates the book as technology in her essay, "The Topography from Here."
  • Melanie Janisse's "Springsong" may inspire you to hop on the ferry and head to Pelee Island. Writers, birds, arrowheads, rainstorms, feasts and friendship weave through Janisse's account of her visit to the island for the annual Pelee Spring Song celebration.
