Stickup by Emily Izsak

10.00

As a friend of Izsak's pointed out after the title of this chapbook had already been selected, Stickup refers, in part, to Toronto, which comes from a Mohawk word meaning, "where there are trees/sticks standing in the water". Stickup is connected to Toronto in so far as it was written there by a Torontonian who attends the University of Toronto. Also it frequently alludes to streets and landmarks within the city. But the title carries with it many other subtle undertones, some of which include armed robbery, friendship, popsicles, and "your butt". 

Emily Izsak's work has been published in Arc Poetry Magazine, House Organ, Cough, The Steel Chisel, Maple Tree Literary Supplement, HOOD, and The Hart House Review. In 2014 she was selected as PEN Canada's New Voices Award nominee.
