A. S. Penne

A.S.Penne is the author of the memoir Old Stones. Her writing has won a number of awards, including the Ian St. James Award in the UK, the Writers’ Digest award in the USA, and the Prairie Fire Creative Nonfiction Contest. She has an MFA from the University of British Columbia. Since 2000, she has facilitated a creative writing workshop for youth under the sponsorship of the Festival of Written Arts in Sechelt, B.C.


While teaching elementary school in her early twenties, she realized the educational philosophy of mainstreaming is only successful for some 20 per cent of students. After so many years at university, it was daunting, to say the least, to discover that teachers have little clout when it comes to remedying the situations of kids who don't fit the mainstream mold. Many of her characters are probably adult versions of those kids who fall between the cracks in the public school system; people who struggle heroically to understand how and/or where they fit in.
