Where Poets Composers & Poets Come Together

Leigh Matthews

Leigh Matthews is a queer, British-born writer who lives in Vancouver, BC, with a sharp-eyed border collie who is both her biggest fan and harshest critic. Leigh supports her tea-drinking habit as a freelance medical copywriter, regularly attends queer literary events in the city, and greatly admires those in possession of the courage to shout out their poetry to the world.

Leigh's first novel, The Old Arbutus Tree, was published in July 2013. Her second novel, Don't Bang the Barista!, was published in October, 2014.
