Amy LeBlanc Named Incoming Managing Editor in 100-Day Coup

2 months, 3 weeks

filling Station is pleased to announce that Amy LeBlanc has been appointed as our next Managing Editor! Amy, who has served as filling Station's Nonfiction Editor since 2018, will replace Kyle Flemmer at the helm in the spring of 2020 in what is already being described as a long and bloodless coup. Amy will act as Assistant Managing Editor in the meantime, a surefire bid to make her heretofore oblivious quarry obsolete. Kyle and Amy are excited to be curating a special issue on ritual together over the coming months along with their team of trusty editors - beyond that we expect an even brighter future under our new supreme leadership. Congratulations, Amy!

Amy LeBlanc is an MA student in English Literature and creative writing at the University of Calgary. She is the author of two chapbooks, most recently "Ladybird, Ladybird" published with Anstruther Press (August 2018). Amy's debut poetry collection, I know something you don’t know, is forthcoming with Gordon Hill Press in Spring 2020. Her short story collection "Homebodies" will be published by Pedlar Press in 2021. Her novella "Unlocking" will be published by the UCalgary Press in their Brave and Brilliant Series in 2022. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Room, PRISM International, and the Literary Review of Canada among others.
