Contributors include Jay Atherhorn, Catherine Bailey, Andrew Birrell, Gabrielle Blais, Jim Burant, Terry Cook, Gordon Dobbs, Wendy Duff, Luciana Duranti, Terry Eastwood, David Enns, Kent Haworth, Lilly Koltun, Tom Nesbit, Peter Robertson, Andrew Rodger, Bill Russell, Joan Schwartz, Wilfred I. Smith, Hugh Taylor, and Ian E. Wilson.
