She has published three collections with Brick Books, Monkey Ranch (which won the 2012 Governor General's Award for poetry), The End of Travel (1999), and The Woman Downstairs (1993). Her poems have appeared in many Canadian and U.S. magazines, including The New Yorker, Maisonneuve, The Walrus, Ploughshares, The Malahat Review and Ms. Since 2005, Julie has taught at The Writing Salon in San Francisco's Mission district, and worked part-time at the University of San Francisco.
Jeffery Donaldson is the author of five collections of poetry. The most recent, Slack Action, was published by Porcupine’s Quill in 2013.

He has contributed extensive criticism, both as a writer and as an editor, including the 2004 volume of essays Frye and the Word: Religious Contexts in the Writings of Northrop Frye (U of T, 2004). He teaches poetry, American literature, and creative writing at McMaster University in Hamilton, and is also editor of the website Jeweller's Eye, with its video-blog reviews of single poems from recent books of Canadian poetry. He lives on the Niagara Escarpment near Grimsby, Ontario.
