An Afternoon in the Park with Susan Juby and Arleen Paré
Susan lives in Nanaimo, where she teaches creative writing at Vancouver Island University. For hobbies, she does a lot of walking and fretting. She is an unskilled but earnest practitioner of Buddhism and a notably unsuccessful amateur dog trainer.

She has been short-listed for the BC Dorothy Livesay BC Award for Poetry and has won a Golden Crown Award for Poetry, the Victoria Butler Book Prize, a CBC Bookie Award, and a Governor Generals’ Award for Poetry.
