Cassidy McFadzean is the author of Hacker Packer (McClelland & Stewart 2015), winner of two Saskatchewan Book Awards and a finalist for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award and the Canadian Authors Association’s Emerging Writer Award. Her poems have appeared in magazines across Canada and the US including Prelude, The Fiddlehead, PRISM international and Arc, and have been finalists for the CBC Literary Awards, the Walrus Poetry Prize, and anthologized in The Best Canadian Poetry 2016. Cassidy was born in Regina, graduated of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and currently lives in Toronto, where she is at work on a second collection.
I am grateful to the Saskatchewan Arts Board and the Access Copyright Foundation for providing financial support as I work on my second book, as well as the Canada Council for the Arts for funding a travel grant so I could attend the Banff Center in 2016.
