Cathleen With – Surrey Muse

Cathleen With is an author and educator who has published two books of fiction. Her novel, ‘Having Faith in the Polar Girls’ Prison‘, was a BC Book Prize winner, and her short story collection ‘Skids‘ was a Relit finalist that is now optioned for film. She was proud to be a part of the short-listed City of Vancouver book ‘V6A: Writings from the Downtown Eastside‘. Cathleen started writing stories in her journal when she was six, and she published her first story in a Surrey newspaper when she was in grade three. The story was about her baby sister and how much she loved chasing her around the apartment and hearing her giggle. Cathleen is now working on a book about a woman with CP, as narrated by her guide dog. She has worked and written in Nepal, India, South Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, and Inuvik, NWT. Cathleen lives in Vancouver where she works as a creative writing instructor at KPU.
