Catherine Owen

CATHERINE OWEN is a writer who lives in New Westminster, BC, the author of twelve collections including the most recent compilation of interviews with Canadian poets called The Other 23 and a Half Hours or Everything you Wanted to Know that your MFA didn’t Teach You (Wolsak & Wynn, 2015). She met Jamie Reid in the mid-90s when he performed at one of the series she co-ran and they continued to stay in touch, he being a vital supporter of her work, attending her readings in Vancouver and performing with her at the inaugural Galiano Writer’s Festival in 2010 where he gallantly went out each morning to purchase scones for the other writers staying with him. His words, his photos and his presence are immoderately missed.
