Big Canvas is the name of the longstanding artist’s circle made up of the writers Sally Cooper, John Miller and Elizabeth Ruth. In the tradition of the Bloomsbury group and the Algonquin Round Table, Big Canvas believes that by joining forces, sharing work, and influencing each other, our work is enriched and our individual artistic practices are energized. Together we amplify our voices and seek to explode contemporary literature.
We’re pleased to announce the October 2018 publication of John Miller‘s new novel Wild and Beautiful is the Night, from Cormorant Books.
Big Canvas is pleased to announce the June 2017 publication of Sally Cooper‘s new short fiction collection, Smells Like Heaven, from ARP Books.
