Writer, editor, writing coach

Ann Diamond was born in the Week of the Pioneer, on the Day of the Inspirer. She has been helping writers shape stories ever since she can remember, which is a long time.

Always a believer in stories as vehicles of awareness and transformation, late in life Ann discovered she really does believe in classical structure, and set about to find out how to go about adapting the ancient principles of drama to a post-modern imagination.

In 1998, she began a successful workshop series called 'Unlocking Your Stories'.

Ann Diamond has taught creative writing (fiction, poetry and drama) at Concordia University and University College of the Cariboo (now Thompson Rivers University).

Lately she has been living on a trapeze between Greece and Canada.
There's a lot more to her story, of course, but she's interested in hearing about yours.

Ann is one of the English-Language Writers available for the
Writers in CEGEPs Program

Evil Eye by Ann Diamond EVIL EYE (Winner of the QSPELL Hugh MacLennan Award for Fiction, 1994.) “As in Diamond's earlier collection, Snakebite, some of the stories are realistic and others fantastical, but in both, the absurd lurks just outside the door and seeps in under the cracks.” - Montreal Gazette

“Diamond's uncluttered language reveals the chill inherent in keeping one's eyes -- and heart -- stationed on the borders of experience.” - Books in Canada
