Cathy Stonehouse writes fiction, poetry and nonfiction, and has published widely in each of these genres. Originally from the UK, she studied English at Oxford University, where she became interested in the experimental traditions in women’s poetry and fiction; she also holds an MFA in Creative Writing from UBC, and a Certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy from Langara College. Her publications include the poetry collections The Words I Know (Press Gang) and grace shiver (Inanna Publications), and the short fiction collection Something about the Animal (Biblioasis).
Stonehouse recently completed work on an experimental novel, and is increasingly drawn, as reader and writer, to work that makes space for the magnetic attraction and interaction of traditionally separated literary and artistic genres. Currently on faculty in the creative writing department at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, she also facilitates creative writing and expressive arts experiences at other venues across the Lower Mainland/unceded Coast Salish Territories.
