new Catholic publisher & book about writing

A fairly new Catholic publisher is Milwaukee-based Wiseblood Books: They’re not open to queries now but could be later. They publish new editions of classics, also previously unpublished books. One of the latter is THE CATHOLIC WRITER TODAY by Dana Gioia, [thin book, price $5]. One reviewer says “It sets a mighty finger on the scales of literature: on the one side what matters and lasts, and on the other what’s shallow and doesn’t....Its arguments about Catholic literature could be applied to American writing in general.” I guess we may assume they also apply to Canadian writing.
