Coyote’s works, often revolving around complex issues of gender, identity, and social justice, are critically acclaimed. Tomboy Survival Guide was longlisted for Canada Reads, shortlisted for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for nonfiction, and named a Stonewall Honour Book in 2017.
During their time as Writer-in-Residence at Simon Fraser University, Coyote was available for one-on-one consultations with creative writers from SFU and the wider community.
“I’ve really loved my time at SFU,” says Coyote. “The caliber of the work that has come across my desk has been excellent, so doing the work itself has been a pleasure. My colleagues have been fantastic. This has been an amazing eight months.”
