Celebrating fifteen years of great teen writing.
Since 1992, The Claremont Review has published the poems and stories of well over a thousand young writers from across Canada, the United States and elsewhere. This semi-annual review represents one of the very few journals that focus solely on the work of apprentices to the craft of serious writing, those young people who aspire to become the next Alice Munro, Michael Ondaatje or P.K. Page.
Naming the Baby celebrates the best from the first thirty issues of The Claremont Review. This exciting anthology features the poetry and fiction of some of the most talented adolescent writers of the past fifteen years, many of whom have gone on to careers in writing and whose novels and poems now grace bookshelves in bookstores across the continent.
Naming the Baby offers great reading for anyone interested in teen literature and will serve as both an invaluable source of inspiration for aspiring writers and an effective teaching resource in schools and libraries. Online teaching aids and lesson plans will be available.

Prairie Fire Magazine - November 1, 2008
"This book, like most babies, offers the exhilaration of hope and a parcel of joy diapered with a whiff of intimidation."
