Carol Neuman – Surrey Muse

Carol Neuman is a poet, writer, literacy activist and a public speaker. Her features on arts and culture, columns on civic engagement, and short form poetry have appeared in numerous publications including BeatRoute, SEE Magazine, the Edmonton Journal, Room Magazine, and, in the anthology Big: Stories of Life in Plus-Sized Bodies (Caitlin Press, 2020). In 2013, Carol was honored as one of Edmonton’s Top 40 Under 40 for her work as a community leader and organizer. She has served as a board member of LitFest – Canada’s only non-fiction literary festival, Vancouver’s Reel Causes and Edmonton’s Next Gen committee. Her love of writing was sparked through an after school job in the late-90’s where she first published concert reviews on one of the world’s earliest online youth culture websites. From writing concert reviews, to presenting her research on subdermal RFID tags at Cambridge University, to working as an Edmonton lobbyist, to expanding access to equitable education- she continues to express herself as a poet, writer and a community leader. At this time, Carol lives in Metro Vancouver where she runs a literacy organization serving 3000 children across British Columbia.
