Naava Smolash – Surrey Muse

Naava Smolash is the author of Turn This World Inside Out: The Emergence of Nurturance Culture (AK Press 2019), which grew out of her viral online essay ‘The Opposite of Rape Culture is Nurturance Culture.’ Naava holds a PhD in English Literature from Simon Fraser University, and is a graduate of The Writer’s Studio. Her work appears in academic and popular publications including Studies in Canadian Literature, West Coast Line, Briarpatch, Everyday Feminism, and The University of Toronto Quarterly. A longtime community organizer, she was a member of the No One is Illegal-Vancouver collective from 2005-2008 and the Media Democracy Day-Vancouver collective from 2008-2010. Current projects include a speculative fiction manuscript entitled Cipher. Originally from Montreal, Naava lives in East Vancouver and teaches in the English department at Douglas College.
