Harriet Richards

Harriet Richards’ creative reality was as a visual artist until an obstinate painting insisted on becoming a short story. Since then, she’s published three books of fiction. Her work has been featured on CBC Radio, and published in literary journals in Canada and Wales; and her paintings have appeared on book covers in both countries.

She has served as mentor, and edited many books of fiction and literary essays for writers across Canada. She lives in Saskatoon.
