La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

My writing has appeared in numerous magazines and journals, including Dragnet Magazine, Open Book Toronto, Best Ultra Short Poems, a Canadian anthology published by the Ontario Poetry Society, and on CBC Canada Writes, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Currently, I am a member of CWILA (Canadian Women in the Literary Arts) and the AICW (Association of Italian-Canadian Writers). I am the recipient of the La Rocca Bursary Award, the 2012 Mattia International Poetry Award, and the 2012 City of Vaughan RAVE Rising Star Award in the Literary Arts. As well, in my professional career, I am a Publicist at Guernica Editions, a mid-size Toronto-Montreal-based Canadian book publisher, dedicated to publishing literature with a fine understanding of different cultures. I am currently working on my next work. I live in Toronto, Canada.
