History

In 2020, Angela Leuck purchased Shoreline Press of Ste. Anne-de-Bellevue, Quebec, from founder and owner, Judith Isherwood, and moved it to her home in Hatley in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. Prior to 2020, Shoreline had published over 200 books (see Shoreline Catalogue Pre-2020) ranging from memoir to detective fiction and from education to poetry. Among these were Leuck’s own first two anthologies: Sun Through the Blinds: Montreal Haiku Today, with co-editor Maxianne Berger, and Tulip Haiku. In working closely with Isherwood on these publications,Leuck got to know firsthand the operations of the press and its longstanding practice of working with interns who learn the art of publishing “on the job.” Leuck looks forward to continuing this fine tradition.

Her articles and stories have appeared in numerous publications, including carte blanche, carve, Homeschooling Horizons, Quebec Writes, Ribbons, The Haiku Canada Review, The Townships Sun, and The Record. In 2019, she edited Water Lines: New Writing from the Eastern Townships of Quebec and, in 2021, Emergence: Contemporary Women Poets of the Eastern Townships of Quebec, both published by Studio Georgeville. Her publishing career began in 1985 as Managing Editor of The McGill Journal of Political Economy and since then she has never looked back.

Last Friday, I visited Judy Isherwood, founder of Shoreline Books, at her home in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue. We relaxed on her newly renovated porch which overlooks Kelso Park on the banks of the St. Lawrence. I remember nearly 20 years ago meeting Judy and one of her interns on this very porch to discuss my first book, Sun Through the Blinds. Shoreline Press was run out of Judy’s home and many meetings ended up being held on her comfortable, plant-filled porch.

I guess that’s a part of Shoreline history, and one that is continuing now on my own porch here in Hatley. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Priscilla Allatt, who will be working this summer at the Record, our local newspaper. Priscilla’s first article will be about Shoreline’s new summer internship program.

In the spring of 2022, Angela relocated to Coaticook to begin a new chapter for Shoreline Press and its imprint Yarrow Press.
