And Now Coordinator

I’m excited to serve as Coordinator of Concordia’s Creative Writing Program for the 2020-21 academic year. My writing and teaching have long reflected my interest in innovative texts and dynamic, embodied, and sustainable writing practices. My recent book, My Ariel, interrogates gendered power dynamics in literary circles and their impact on creative women’s lives, and my current SSHRC funded research creation project, “Writing Beyond The Room,” carries this work forward both personally and collaboratively. My own experiences in our MA in English – Creative Writing program, first as a student, and recently as faculty, has reaffirmed and strengthened my commitment to listening to and learning from our students who lead in their visions for change. I am eager to continue that work, and to find new ways of coming together in virtual and physical worlds. –September 2020
