I am Galadriel Watson. I’ve been writing since childhood, when I penned the spellbinding “Amy Goes to the Olympics”—typed by my grandmother on a manual typewriter, illustrated by me and bound in green construction paper.

I’ve since honed my skills through years of practice, plus through my Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia, where I won the 2016 Penguin Random House/Hazlitt Award in Creative Writing. I also have a Bachelor of Arts With Distinction in Writing from the University of Victoria, plus completed Humber College’s Creative Writing by Correspondence program. In addition, I have a Bachelor of Commerce With Distinction in Marketing and Entrepreneurship from McGill University.
