Goose Lane Editions

From 1989 to 1997 Douglas Lochhead was president of Goose Lane. It is now headed by publisher and co-owner Susanne Alexander. The Canada Council for the Arts says the publishing company "has evolved to become one of Canada's most exciting showcases of home-grown literary talent." [2]
