I have literary bylines in On Spec Magazine, Qwerty, ottawater, untethered, and other journals. My web copy has been published by The Globe and Mail, the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, and the Saskatchewan Arts Alliance. In 2017, I was awarded First Place for Fiction in the Blodwyn Memorial Prize. In 2018, I won the League of Canadian Poets’ National Broadsheet Contest. I have an MFA in Writing from the University of Saskatchewan, where I’ve also taught creative writing.

I’m currently seeking representation or a publisher for my fiction manuscript.
