Joanna Lilley – Surrey Muse

Joanna Lilley is a British Canadian author, poet and arts organizer. She has published three poetry collections: Endlings (Turnstone Press), If There Were Roads (Turnstone Press), and The Fleece Era (Brick Books) that was nominated for the Fred Cogswell Award for Excellence in Poetry. She’s also the author of a short story collection, The Birthday Books (Hagios Press), and a novel, Worry Stones (Ronsdale Press), that was longlisted for the Caledonia Novel Award. Joanna has given readings all across Canada and in the US and UK and has delivered workshops as far afield as Alaska and Iceland. Joanna moved to Canada in 2006, 15 years after cycling alone across the country from Nova Scotia to Inuvik in the Northwest Territories. She now lives in Whitehorse, Yukon, where she co-founded the Yukon Writers’ Collective Ink. She is grateful to reside on the Traditional Territories of the Kwanlin Dün First Nation and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council.
