Welcome

Heather Burt is a Vancouver writer with global interests. Her acclaimed debut novel, Adam's Peak, shortlisted for the 2008 Ethel Wilson Prize for fiction, follows its troubled characters from suburban Montreal to 1960s small-town Scotland to the volatile political landscapes of Sri Lanka. Heather's short stories and non-fiction articles likewise cross borders of one kind or another in their explorations of human experience.

Working in other genres, Heather has authored an allegorical stage play, Olympians (available for production), and a well-loved photo blog, Walking With Freddie (2013 - 2015).

Heather spends part of each year teaching literature and writing at Langara College. When not teaching, she's available for freelance writing, festival reading & speaking, workshop instruction, and manuscript feedback.
