In this ground-breaking book, writers and artists come together in conversation, interviews, poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction to reflect on the creative process. This collection displaces the long-held myth of the artist as solitary visionary with a different narrative of lively conversations across generations and among art forms. Some of the poets included are: Di Brandt, Elizabeth Brewster, Natalee Caple, Margaret Christakos, Cornelia Hoogland, Jan Horner, Penn Kemp, Dorothy Livesay, Nicole Markotic, Daphne Marlatt, Anne Marriott, Karen Mulhallen, Sharon Nelson, Lola Lemire Tostevin, Betsy Warland, Phyllis Webb, Janice Williamson, and composers, Rebecca Campbell and Carol Ann Weaver.

I was prepared to love this book from the first sentence: "What if we hadn't come to poetry, to literary writing, as women, threading our way carefully between rock and stone, competing for individualist masculinist privilege, daring public performance, mourning the loss of traditional feminine consolations, enveloping warmth of family, community, safety in shared silence?" But no matter how wondrous the writing, no matter how significant the content, the 6-point font made it impossible to continue. Why? Why? Why? A book like this should be substantial, the form matching the message, that it is right that women take up the space that they take>
