Helen Walsh no longer publisher of LRC Literary Review of Canada

Helen Walsh
Helen Walsh is no longer the publisher of LRC, Literary Review of Canada. A story in the Toronto Star reports that she has been replaced on an interim basis by LRC board member Mark Lovewell. Supporters received a terse email from editor Sarmishta Subramanian that said only that the magazine "is launching a comprehensive strategic review and fundraising campaign to chart a course for the long-term."
Jaime Watt, head of Navigator PR and the chair of the LRC’s board of directors, did not provide any further comment but reiterated in a statement that the magazine is launching a strategic review.
The LRC was launched in 1991 by Patrice Dutil. Walsh took over as publisher of LRC in 1998 and introduced a series of public readings and talks. In 2005 she founded Diaspora Dialogues, an arts organization promoting the work of culturally diverse writers. More recently, she piloted Spur, a national festival of politics, arts and ideas.
