Lucy Black


Lucy E.M. Black is an inveterate eavesdropper: she collects voices, dialects
and stories and weaves them tenderly into stories so real we come to believe
that we have actually met her characters.  Lucy studied writing at the
undergraduate level and earned an M.A. in nineteenth-century British
fiction.  Her interests are broad-ranging as are her many activities.  Her
short stories have been published in Ireland, England, the USA and Canada in
a number of literary magazines, including Cyphers Magazine, the Hawai’i
Review, the Antigonish Review and the Queen’s Quarterly.  She is a dynamic
workshop presenter, experienced interviewer and freelance writer.  Her
published books include The Marzipan Fruit Basket, Eleanor Courtown, and
Stella’s Carpet. The Brickworks will be released on October 14, 2023.  She
is the Fiction Editor and Deputy Managing Editor for The Artisanal Writer,
an online journal celebrating the craft of writing. She lives with her
partner in the small lakeside town of Port Perry, Ontario, the traditional
territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island, First Nations.  

Lucy Black has been co-ordinating the SCA committee working on hiring a Poet
Laureate. She also helps out
with literary events and teach writing workshops at the Scugog Arts Space.
