SVETLANA LILOVA was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, and was raised by her grandparents in a remote rural village. In her early teens, without warning, she was spirited through the Iron Curtain by relatives. She arrived in Canada not knowing a word of English. Soon she was inseparable from her dictionary.
JOSIE DI SCIASCIO-ANDREWS lives in Oakville, Ontario, Canada. She is a poet, writer and French as a Second Language teacher. Born in Italy, she studied at the University of Toronto and later at Harvard University. She has published two previous works of poetry and has won numerous awards for her work including the Arborealis Anthology Prize, Winsome Words Anthology First Prize Winner and the Ontario Poetry Society Ultra Short Poem Contest.
