Mansfield Press is a Toronto-based publisher of poetry, literary fiction, and books about city culture. Some of Mansfield's most notable titles include Toronto Poet Laureate Pier Giorgio Di Cicco's Municipal Mind: Manifestos for the Creative City (2007), College Street -- Little Italy: Toronto's Renaissance Strip (2006), and Red Silk: An Anthology of Women South Asian Poets (2004; edited by Rishma Dunlop and Priscila Uppal).
I am very grateful to publisher Denis De Klerck for taking on this project, which I hope will be a credit to Mansfield's City Building Books imprint.
And now, to clear my schedule and lay in a supply of Bailey's to steady me through a winter of writing. I'll still be teaching at York one day a week, but the bulk of my time and energy will be dedicated to completing the book. Afternoon invitations to escape for hot chocolate, however, will be welcomed warmly.
