There are times in one's life when the pain will not stop, when it seems everyone you love is hurting, and some are dying. Moira MacDougall's second collection of poetry, VANISHING ACTS, speaks to us from here, where she sits "in grief's debris." An unflinching correspondent of the hard labour of dying, and of the "heart of the medical labyrinth! Ugly thing it is - and dull," MacDougall questions the small chaos of our lives and the delicate ways we remain alive against a background of swirling eternity.

Moira MacDougall's artistic life began as a serious student of classical ballet and modern dance; poetry wed her love of movement and rhythm with voice and linguistic performance. She has been published in Canadian and American literary journals, and Bone Dream (Tightrope Books, 2009) was her first collection of poems. She is Poetry Editor for The Literary Review of Canada. Moira MacDougall lives in The Beach in Toronto, Ontario.

John Glenday's first collection, 'The Apple Ghost' won a Scottish Arts Council Book Award and his second, 'Undark', was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation. 'Grain' (Picador, 2009) was also a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and was shortlisted for both the Ted Hughes Award and the Griffin International Poetry Prize. His fourth collection 'The Golden Mean' won the 2015 Roehampton Poetry Prize. He was appointed Scottish/Canadian Exchange Fellow in 1990/91, based at the University of Alberta, and taught on the poetry faculty at the Banff Centre in 2010.
