We’ve Hired!
Published on September 29, 2023



We’re excited to introduce Nived Dharmaraj and Alexandra Sweny, who joined our team this August. You can find Nived managing the masthead of the Montreal Review of Books as Associate Editor, while Alexandra will be working with the Association of English-language Publishers of Quebec as Production Coordinator. Learn more about Nived and Alexandra below, and keep an eye out for their names in our next issue!

Alexandra Sweny (she/her) recently completed her master’s in English literature at Concordia University, where she worked with archival literary collections as a member of the SpokenWeb research network. When she’s not reading, you can find her running up the mountain or untangling herself from her knitting (both Sisyphean tasks). Most recently, she read and loved Catherine Ocelot’s Symptômes (Éditions Pow Pow).

Nived Dharmaraj (he/him) is a recent graduate of McGill University’s English MA program. Having written his thesis on Indian historical and science fiction, he’s now eager to spend time with literature closer to his new home. If you see him biking around the city, don’t say hi because he will get distracted and crash! He’s currently got his eyes on Do You Remember Being Born? (Penguin Random House Canada) by Sean Michaels.
