Lolette Kuby came to Canada in 1999 after quitting her job in the English Dept. of the Cleveland State University, and she taught at Humber College during her first year in Toronto. Now freelance editing and her own writing take all her work time. Her first full-length collection of poems, Set Down Here came out in 2002, and another collection, Inwit, followed in 2003. Her other books include An Uncommon Poet for the Common Man: A Study of Philip Larkin's Poetry, and Faith and the Placebo Effect: An Argument for Self-healing. Her short story collection Out of Cleveland was released in April 2007. Her new novel, Writing Personals, was published in 2010 from Vehicule Press. She is a member of PEN America.
