From the Upper Don Valley comes this site dedicated to all things literary. 

Reading can transport people to different worlds and allow them to experience different perspectives and emotions. It can broaden their horizons and teach them about history, science, philosophy, and other subjects. The more someone reads, the more they can learn, and the more their understanding of the world can expand. Reading requires focus and attention, allowing people to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life.

People who love reading often find themselves forming emotional connections with characters and their stories, which can lead to a greater sense of empathy and understanding. Overall, the love of reading is a beautiful thing that can enrich people's lives in countless ways.

We'd love to be able to promote local talent. If any authors or writers would like to share the products of their imagination through this site, we'd be happy to help them. Writing can be a lonely process and we hope to support those who enrich our lives with their prose (or even poetry).
