Hi, I’m Charlene! Originally from the suburbs, I made my way to the city as soon as I could. I live in Vancouver where I work at a contemporary art gallery and write poetry, fiction, and non-fiction (including this blog). I spent my university years in two capital cities: Ottawa for my Bachelor of Humanities (Carleton University) and Victoria for my Master’s in English (UVic).
I write about the city I live in and new ones I occasionally visit. I write about art on streets and in galleries, poetry in books or on skyscrapers, books I’m reading, music I’m listening to, artsy projects taking over my living room, and whatever else is inspiring me lately.
Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to contact me if you’re looking for a writer/editor or would like to use any of my stuff.
