Nasreen Pejvack – Surrey Muse


Nasreen Pejvack is a novelist, educator and a poet. Her first novel Amity (Inanna Publications, York University Press 2015), a Finalist for 2016 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, explores the devastating impact of wars on families and individuals within the context of Yugoslavia’s dissolution and Iran’s revolution. Nasreen is a member of The Writers Union of Canada (TWUC) and Royal City Literary Arts Society (RCLAS). She is the founder and host of Tellers of Short Tales, a new reading series in New Westminster. 

Nasreen was born in Tehran, Iran, a place she left over 30 years ago, and went on to live in Athens, Ottawa, California, finally settling in Vancouver. Nasreen worked in the computer field, progressing from Programmer to Systems Analyst over eleven years, then she studied and worked for twelve years in the field of Psychology. For the past three years she has been writing about ‘the human condition in all its complexities; concerned about how humanity has gained such profound intellectual capital and such marvelous technologies, yet wars, intolerance and suffering have followed us throughout those centuries, and now threaten to overcome all our achievements‘.
