E. D. (Elaine) Morin, author and editor

E. D. (Elaine) Morin lives on traditional Treaty 7 territory. Her first trade book, Writing Menopause, a literary anthology, was co-edited with Jane Cawthorne. Her latest, Impact: Women Writing About Concussion, also with Jane, will be published by University of Alberta Press, September 2021. Her experience with concussion is documented in a comic strip on Empathize This.

Elaine's fiction, poems, interviews, book reviews, articles and personal essays have appeared in publications across North America and her work has been produced for broadcast on CBC Radio. Her stories often explore misfits and familial relationships.


Her work has been shortlisted for an Impress Prize and The Malahat Review Open Season Awards and nominated for two Pushcart Prizes. She won the Brenda Strathern Writing Prize for her story "Castration Lessons", which became a chapbook. A member of Crabapple Mews Collective, Elaine believes that it takes a team, if not a sisterhood, to make a book sing.
