Her nonfiction book, In the Slender Margin was published by HarperCollins in 2014 and won the Hubert Evans award for nonfiction.

A Manitoban by nature and nurture, PATRICK FRIESEN has lived on the west coast for the past 20 years. He has written poetry, drama, essays, song lyrics and text for music and dance collaborations. Recent subject matter has included the poetic mind narrative of a female trickster character and, in new work, the occasional interweaving of Middle English, and Low and High German words into poems.
