Hi from Nicole
+ Rowan!


I’m an award-winning author and writing coach whose mission is to help busy writers craft their best work and share it with the world faster than they dreamed possible. 

In my experience, career breakthroughs follow creative breakthroughs… and big breakthroughs happen when writers get playful with form and craft.

Many of the discoveries I’m sharing in this workshop I learned by writing and teaching experimental short-form memoir.

My courses are all about bending and blending genre and pushing the boundaries of form. They have helped countless writers place in contests and celebrate their first publication credits.


Rowan McCandless writes from Treaty 1 territory in Winnipeg. She is a Governor General’s Award finalist for her debut memoir, Persephone’s Children: A Life in Fragments. Co-winner of the Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book (2022), her award-winning writing has also appeared in various anthologies and journals.

In 2018 she was long-listed for the Journey Prize and won the Constance Rooke CNF prize. In 2020, she received gold with the National Magazine Awards.

Rowan is the Creative Nonfiction editor with The Fiddlehead magazine. Her debut book, Persephone’s Children, is a mosaic memoir about Rowan’s odyssey as a Black, biracial woman escaping the stranglehold of domestic abuse.
