Sara Sutterlin’s I Wanted to Be the Knife picks at the bones of modern romance by exploring the disappointments of intimacy and the loneliness of dissolving relationships. Her poems are brutal, funny and full of tender, ugly details that remind us of the compromises we make with ourselves and each other when in love.

Sara Sutterlin is the author of three poetry books: I Wanted To Be The Knife (Metatron Press, 2015), Baveuse (Electric Cereal, 2015) and Baby (Metatron Press, 2017). She is the founder and editor in chief of Leste Magazine (2016-) and Doof Magazine (2019-)

Since 2014, the 100% woman-owned and operated literary publisher Metatron Press has supported over 500 emerging writers who push the boundaries of contemporary writing through edgy, provocative, brave and emotionally resonant works. The Montréal-based publisher focuses on books that don't necessarily fit into traditions, favouring informing and challenging authors instead.
