Lesley-Anne Evans is a poet and arts facilitator who dabbles in foraging and small batch jam making. She belongs to a small woodland in Kelowna, British Columbia, where she hosts spiritual retreats. Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Lesley-Anne is most alive in the company of fierce women and on wild coastlines. Lesley-Anne’s poetry is published and installed. She won the 2019 Federation of BC Writer’s Literary Prize, and was long listed for the 2020 Canterbury Poet of the Year. Lesley-Anne’s first full length collection is forthcoming from St. Thomas Poetry Series in November 2021.
