LORANNE BROWN, MFA — Loranne specialized in English literature at the University of St. Michael’s College and recently completed an MFA in Writing at Pacific University, Oregon. She has taught in the Professional Writing stream of the Department of Media + Communication at Trinity Western University since 2001.

Her first novel, The Handless Maiden (Doubleday Canada, 1998), was a finalist for both the Chapters/Books in Canada First Novel Award and the BC Book Award, and longlisted for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award in 2000. She has worked as a technical writer, a journalist and weekly columnist, and has written for the Globe and Mail, Vancouver Sun and other publications.

Loranne finds the opportunity to mentor young writers through a project with which they are passionately engaged particularly fulfilling.  She has enjoyed a long association with the Federation of BC Writers (past President and Executive Director) and with Surrey Continuing Education, where she taught creative writing. She lives in Langley with her family and attends St. Joseph’s Parish.
