Bio
I am an editor and author who brings diverse experience in the realms of publishing, cultural programming, and anti-racism and human rights/equity education. I am also a published poet working on manuscript #4, and an independent scholar (MA English, 2009). I served as the inaugural Equity, Diversity and Inclusion adviser for Editors Canada. In the spirit of intersectional activism, I am committed more than ever to joining fellow editors, writers, publishers, educators, creators and kin in taking inventory right now of how best to create meaningful opportunities for BIPOC authors across the board. I always offer a sliding scale for authors who identify as structurally disadvantaged.
