‘Malcolm van Delst stands out as a lazy writer
in a profession notorious for idlers and bums. She crowd-sourced
this bio. She is a lady who codes, a sometime bitcoin miner fond of
get-rich-quick schemes, and has a knack for dramatifying.’
Malcolm van Delst is a poet, novelist and web developer who is passionate about writing, acting and filmmaking. She began her novel Do the Wrong Thing in 2014 during Nanowrimo, and it was launched in 2018. Malcolm’s stories and poems have been published by various zines including Tenement, she has appeared in Fringe plays, and, she had the 12th most viewed video at CBC’s now defunct site, Zed.

She has an English Literature degree from McMaster University and diplomas in computer graphics, multimedia, and integrated media from various institutions including Emily Carr Institute where she later taught.
