Short Stories and Poetry

Building Community

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Authors Association, this anthology contains short stories and poems from all the finalists in the 2021 National Capital Writing Contest.

My short story, Will Destroy for Food, won third place. The story is a metaphor for our treatment of ‘other’, from the eyes of an unusual protagonist.

My poem, On Writing, won an honourable mention. The poem expresses the author’s journey, both in terms of toil of the writing process and the decision to become an author.
