Wanda John-Kehewin Wednesday Nov. 11th

Wanda John-Kehewin is Cree/mixed blood writer, originally from Kehewin Alberta. She studied creative writing briefly at Langara College and majored in Sociology. She was raised on a reservation with only pencils and paper as her creative outlet; she attributes her simple, hard life to opening her world of imagination using words to paint pictures of social justice, realism, love and issues she has faced as a single mother. She moved to the west coast in 1991. Wanda has been a literary performer and publishing poet since she was 16 but only began to seriously ‘write’ again in 2004. She has performed her work at many local events and hopes in the future that she can travel and share her work. She is currently editing a manuscript for publication. Wanda is mother of two sons and one daughter who definitely contribute to her creative writing process.
