My favourite authors are many. Kurt Vonnegut, Joseph Boyden, Toni Morrison and Thomas King (Green Grass Running Water; current favourite book). I love good writing and we have many great Canadian authors.
I write creative non fiction but have written some fiction (flash fiction mostly) lately and have really enjoyed this. I write the occasional poem but most of these are works in progress. I am trying to familiarize myself with literary magazines so I can polish my piece (just one more time) before sending them in to publishers. I have one literary agent who is looking at my work.
My name is Heather and when I attended the Banff School of the Arts Writing with Style programme I found being around other writers was astounding and inspiring. I have live in Vancouver for only a year and am not too familiar with writers here.
