Jennifer Manuel – Surrey Muse

JenniferManuel

Jennifer Manuel is a novelist, a writer of short fiction, a mentor and an activist. Her debut novel ‘The Heaviness of Things That Float‘ (Douglas & McIntyre, 2016) offers her unique perspectives on this time of ‘truth and reconciliation’. She has received the Storyteller’s Award at the Surrey International Writer’s Conference for short fiction, and she was a Finalist for a Western Magazine Award. Her work has appeared in PRISM International, The Fiddlehead, Room Magazine, and Little Fiction. Jennifer is a TA for Sarah Selecky’s The Story Intensive, and she is a long-time activist around Aboriginal peoples’ colonial issues.

Jennifer taught elementary and high school in the lands of the Tahltan and Nuu-chah-nulth peoples, and her art is reflective of her experiences. ‘A lot of her writing explores life at these remote edges, often focusing on the Aboriginal student/non-Aboriginal teacher relationship, which she sees as fruitful yet ultimately flawed.’ (Sarah Selecky). Jennifer now lives on Vancouver Island in British Columbia.
