Bios of the apprentices:
Troni Grande teaches Shakespeare, drama, and feminist theory in the English Department at the University of Regina. Besides having published on Marlowe, Shakespeare, and Northrop Frye, she writes on “she-tragedy”—an eighteenth-century kind of tragedy focusing on the woman as a suffering, beautiful victim of patriarchy. She has also published several poems in literary anthologies and CV2. Her creative work-in-progress is a memoir entitled Baba’s Pyrogies, celebrating the stories and legacy springing from her maternal grandmother, a settler of the Ukrainian bloc in east-central Alberta. A portion of this memoir has been published in the 2016 Demeter Press anthology Borderlands and Crossroads: Writing the Motherland (edited by Jane Satterfield and Laurie Kruk).
Danica Lorer's name rests in the word explorer. She finds adventure and inspiration in fields, forests, riverbanks, cities, and small towns. Danica has spent the past twenty years as a professional storyteller. Her favourite audience members and workshop participants have been from 0-103 years old. Danica believes in the power of listening and telling. She is a freelance writer, face and body painter, poet, and the host of Shaw TV's literary arts program 'Lit Happens'.
Kate O’Gorman began writing fiction in early 2017. She has since studied with author, Guy Vanderhaeghe at the University of Saskatchewan, and with author, Jeannette Lynes and poet, Daniel Scott Tysdal through Sage Hill Writing Experience. As a member of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild, Kate is thrilled to be an apprentice in the 2018 Mentorship Program. Kate is an early morning riser, a cheesecake connoisseur, and a coffee/wine enthusiast. She lives in Saskatoon with her husband and daughter.
