Malcolm van Delst – Surrey Muse

‘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 designer/developer who is passionate about writing, acting and filmmaking. She began her novel Do the Wrong Thing three years ago during Nanowrimo, and it is expected to come out later this year with another book titled The Low Self-Esteem Reading Room. Her stories and poems have been published at 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. Malcolm works with Vancouver Writers Group where she has created and continue to run a bi-weekly reading, writing and podcasting group and a bi-weekly Let’s Get Visible, self-Publishing and marketing Group. 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. Her favorite writers are Doris Lessing, Karl Ove Knausgaard and Sherman Alexie. For the next couple of years, Malcolm intends to increase her publishing pace, write more, read at more events, work on her idea of a one-woman play, and, begin a second novel that will ‘experiment more with form’. Malcolm wrote her first story at eight- and it was about a rabbit meeting a butterfly.
