Though many anthologies purport to establish a new canon, Desperately Seeking Susans simply luxuriates in the ridiculous surfeit of talent we can find in not only Canadian poets, not only female Canadian poets, but female Canadian poets named Susan. Included in the anthology are works by: Sue Goyette, Susan Gillis, Susan Elmslie, Susan Telfer, Susan McMaster, Susan Andrews Grace, Susan Holbrook, Sue Stewart, Susan Glickman, Sue Chenette, Susan Musgrave, Susan Briscoe, Sue Macleod, Sioux Browning, Sue Sinclair, Susan Olding, Susan Ioannou and Sue Wheeler.
