University of Waterloo

I was really happy to hear today that I’ve made it on to next year’s creative writing syllabus at the University of Waterloo. Carrie Anne Snyder, who was shortlisted for a Governor General’s award and whose latest novel Girl Runner looks set to become a smash hit, will be including my work in her fall program. I lived in Waterloo for a while as a teen and used to hang out at the university library in my ripped jeans and oversized 80s trench coat with the sleeves rolled up. Kind of cool to think some kid might be sitting there puzzling over my work this fall.
