Originally from Saskatchewan, I am a writer and video producer currently living in Toronto. Moving Parts, my debut short story collection, was published by Arsenal Pulp Press in 2015 and was longlisted for the 2016 ReLit Awards. An alumnus of the Banff Wired Writing Studio, my work has appeared in ELLE Canada, Taddle Creek Magazine, and Sarah Selecky's Little Bird Stories: Volumes I and II. I was long listed for the 2014 CBC Short Story Prize and won the Random House of Canada Creative Writing Award at the University of Toronto in 2012.

Or, Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones has a few juicy prompts like: Write down "I remember..." and write until the scene ends. Repeat. If that gets tired, switch it up to "I don't remember..."

Go for a walk. On the walk, choose a colour, say, blue. Notice everything that is that colour. It will clear your mind. Come back and write down a list "Thing that are blue".

Pick a letter. Set a timer for six minutes. Write down all the words that you can think of that start with that letter. A great warm up exercise that can be used as a prompt. When the timer stops, set it again, this time for ten minutes. Write a scene using three of the words from the list. (less)
