‘If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write.   Simple as that.’ –Stephen King


We are writers, so we are readers. We read for fun, for knowledge, for inspiration–to learn to speak and play in the language of writers.

Here are some of our favourite non-fiction, short story and poetry writers. We hope you love and learn from them as much as we did.


Tense Present by David Foster Wallace

On Morality by Joan Didion

Letting Go by David Sedaris

Short Story

Boys and Girls by Alice Munro

10^80 Pieces by Madeleine Thien
