Monica Brown (Editor and general Bartleby) is a voracious reader and lover of language. Presently, she's completing a Ph.D. in English at the University of British Columbia (UBC), where she specializes in rhetoric. She also holds an M.A. in English, and a B.A. (Hons) in English (Rhetoric and Professional Writing). Over the past few years, Monica has researched and written a history of a Canadian labour council, and served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate English at UBC. As the daughter of two publishing industry professionals, Monica has ink in her veins and passion in her heart.
Andre Gerard (Publisher) has an MA in English Literature from the University of Washington and over twenty-five years of private tutoring experience. As for the skills required to manage the constant chaos associated with publishing, Andre credits marathon running with building stamina, discipline and toughness: bird banding with sharpening curiousity and a sense of adventure; and lengthy stints as a Postal Production Planning and Quality Assurance Officer and, later, as a Fish Processing Plant Manager with teaching him practical business skills. His favourite refrain is Melville's "Oh, Time, Strength, Cash and Patience."
