Jeremy Luke Hill, Publisher – jeremy@gordonhillpress.com

Jeremy Luke Hill was born in Guelph, Ontario. He completed both a BA and an MA in English Literature at the University of Guelph, and he's been working in the city's literary scene ever since. He founded Vocamus Writers Community, a non-profit organization that promotes book culture in the Guelph area.

Carol Dilworth, Proofreader

Carol Dilworth did undergraduate studies at Western University and holds Masters degrees from the University of Toronto and Victoria University. Carol’s most memorable work experience was in Latvia after independence. She has also worked in Australia. A Guelphite for twenty-five years, Carol reads at Open Mic and had an award-winning poem published in FreeFall. But Carol’s best qualification to be our proofreader is that she attended elementary school when youngsters were drilled in grammar. And composition. And times tables.
