Anna Rumin

Anna Rumin began writing stories during quiet time when she was banished to her bedroom for an hour every afternoon. She began married life in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, where she joined the faculty at the Bishop’s University School of Education and where her children were born. Her graduate work was rooted in narrative inquiry and the role life-stories play in education. After ten years in Quebec, her family packed up and moved to Switzerland, where she continued to teach, write, and travel at almost every opportunity. Now in Ottawa, Anna writes short fiction, designs and teaches memoir-based writing courses, spends precious time at her cottage with friends and family, and continues to consume good fiction.
