Reserve your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All women, non-binary, genderqueer, and two-spirit folks are welcome, however, spaces are limited and priority will be given to Indigenous and racialized migrant folks.

Helen is a Dane Zaa, Cree, and mixed Euro-descent woman from Prophet River First Nations living in Fort St. John, B.C. In 2017, she was a recipient of the Indigenous REVEAL art award through the Hnatyshyn Foundation for her literary work. Her first book, In My Own Moccasins, was released in August 2019 and was longlisted for the RBC Taylor Prize and is currently shortlisted for a BC Yukon Book Prize. When she isn’t writing or parenting, Helen is getting lost down dirt backroads in the Peace Region and chasing sunsets.
