Kate Gies

Kate Gies is a writer, activist, and educator living in Toronto, Canada. She teaches creative nonfiction, expressive arts, and public speaking at George Brown College. Her fiction, non-fiction, and poetry have been published in both Canada and the U.S. Her writing often blurs the line between humour and horror, the mundane and the surreal. Her style could be described as lyrical, sparse, and imbued with political undertones. She is currently working on a memoir about her childhood medical experiences and an excerpt was recently longlisted for a national non-fiction prize. You can read some of her work at
