Stacey May Fowles

Stacey May Fowles currently lives in Toronto and is the publisher of Shameless Magazine. Her first novel, Be Good, was published by Tightrope Books in 2007. This Magazine called it “probably the most finely realized small press novel to come out of Canada in the last year.” In fall 2008 she released an illustrated novel, Fear of Fighting, and staged a theatrical adaptation of it with Nightwood Theatre. Her writing has appeared in various magazines and has been widely anthologized in Nobody Passes: Rejecting The Rules of Gender and Conformity; First Person Queer; Yes Means Yes; and I.V. Lounge Nights. This story emerged as part of the Diaspora Dialogues mentorship program, with consultation from Alissa York. Website http://www.staceymayfowles.com/
