Grey Borders will also introduce its in-house press, Grey Borders Press, in late 2017.


James Millhaven spends his time in downtown St. Catharines. His latest work, “Thirty,” has been published for the Niagara Literary Arts Festival 2015. He has two previous chapbooks, “Edges” and “As Well,” both published by Grey Borders Books. “Untitled #33” is a one-act play by James and was workshopped and performed by Edwin Conroy Jr., Graham Shaw and Heather Lowe as part of the 2015 In The Soil Festival.

The way that an ecosystem can be multidimensional in function for a variety of species always amazes Kasia Zgurzynski, and it is her passion to take part in this process and share it with others. Over the years, Kasia has discovered that her niche in the community is to bring people closer to nature. She believes that when people become closer to their environment, they begin to engage with it, and each other, differently. Kasia has completed training as an Environmental Technician, Red Seal Landscape Horticulturist, Certified Seed Collector and Certified Yoga Instructor. “The Human Ape” (Grey Borders Books, 2017) is her first published book of poetry.
