Writer, painter and scholar, Stéphane Martelly was born in Port-au-Prince and now lives in Montreal. Through a profoundly transdisciplinary approach, she confronts theory, critical reflection and art in her work. She is a professor of creative writing and Research-Creation at Université de Sherbrooke. She is writing a series of fables to think and imagine. Her latest book is L’enfant-gazelle (Remue-Ménage, 2018), Little Girl Gazelle, translation by Katia Grubisic (LLP, 2020).

Katia Grubisic writes poems, made-up stories, and a bunch of boring stuff for grownups. She also translates books, like L’enfant gazelle, from French to English. // Katia Grubisic écrit des poèmes, des histoires qu’elle invente dans sa tête, et plein de choses plates pour les grandes personnes, et elle traduit aussi des livres, comme L’enfant gazelle, du français vers l’anglais.
