Anne Stone (MA, McGill University, 1997) is a writer, teacher and editor living in Vancouver. Her latest novel is Girl Minus X (Wolsak & Wynn, 2020). She's also the author of three previous novels: Delible (2007), Hush (1999) and jacks (1998).
Stone is currently working on a collection of short stories that exist at the uneasy verge of realism. Troubling a simple approach to representations of violence and trauma, these stories cross boundaries between the literary, the speculative, the uncanny, and body horror, confounding separations between a singular identity and a plurality of selves.
In my creative writing classes, I aim for an open and supportive space in which rich, responsible and thoughtful discussion is encouraged.
Ultimately, I want emerging writers to see the full range of possibilities available to them when they sit down before the page, and I want the classroom to act in service to their consistent, meaningful writing practice.
In my latest English 100 course, we study the work we do at the University (and look, for example, at the kinds of challenges students may face when a deadline looms).
As a first-generation university graduate, I am aware of the ways in which system assumptions are sometimes implicit or unspoken—and do my best to decode such assumptions as we move through the course.
