M&S Canadian Poetry

 

During her four decades at McClelland & Stewart, Ellen was a fierce advocate for Canadian poetry, helping to ensure that M&S was for decades and remains the only large publisher in Canada to publish poetry.

Working with poetry editors Dennis Lee, Russell Brown, Sam Solecki, and Stan Dragland, she was the in-house editor for McClelland & Stewart’s poetry program for many years, before becoming its publisher for the past two decades. In 2014, she re-launched the poetry program and created McClelland & Stewart’s inaugural Poetry Board, comprising well-known and highly respected poets and editors Ken Babstock, Dionne Brand, and Kevin Connolly. Historically, M&S was the publisher of such poets as Margaret Avison, Earle Birney, Ralph Gustafson, Irving Layton, Gwendolyn MacEwen, and Al Purdy, and has more recently published a long list of poets who have received the highest recognition and awards in the country, including the Griffin Poetry Prize five times. This is a list of the poets who were published under her aegis.
