MA|DE (est. 2018) is a collaborative writing entity, a unity of two voices fused into a single, poetic third. It is the name given to the joint authorship of Mark Laliberte and Jade Wallace, artists whose active solo practices differ radically from one another. MA|DE’s writing has appeared in numerous journals and chapbooks, and they have delivered workshops on collaborative writing at several festivals, including VerseFest Ottawa. Their latest chapbook is Expression Follows Grim Harmony (Jackpine Press, 2023). With the support of the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts, they completed their debut full-length manuscript, ZZOO — which was recently acquired by Palimpsest Press (forthcoming, spring 2025). They are currently working on three new manuscripts: Alphabeticals, Detourism and Waste Not the Marrow. More: ma-de.ca.
