SFU Degree(s): The Writer's Studio: Creative Writing Certificate, 2015

I am a freelance writer and editor, an author, and an instructor of creative writing. I spent many years in journalism before turning to creative writing, with help from The Writer's Studio at SFU. I'm currently at work on my next books: my second novel, as well as a collection of essays. My debut novel is currently longlisted for the 2022 Leacock Medal. I live and work in Surrey, which is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Katzie, Kwantlen, Semiahmoo and other Coast Salish Peoples.

What advice do you have for SFU students going through their degree? 

Take every opportunity to do things that are new to you, even if they feel scary - perhaps most of all when they feel scary. When an exciting opportunity arises, don't start thinking of all the reasons you're not capable enough or smart enough. Just say yes first, and figure out how to do it after. You'll develop the skills along the way.
