Ivan E. Coyote (Vancouver)

Ivan E Coyote

Ivan Coyote was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. An award-winning author of five collections of short stories, one novel, two CD’s, four short films and a renowned performer, Ivan’s first love is live storytelling, and over the last thirteen years she has become an audience favourite at music, poetry, spoken word and writer's festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam. The Globe and Mail called Ivan "a natural-born storyteller" and Ottawa X Press said "Coyote is to CanLit what k.d. lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture." Ivan is a columnist for Xtra West magazine, writes regularly for The Georgia Straight and CBC Radio. Her first novel, Bow Grip, was released in the fall of 2006, and was awarded the Relit award for best fiction and recognized by the American Library Association as a Stonewall honor book in literature. Her fifth collection of stories, The Slow Fix, was released in September, 2008.
