Daria Salamon’s work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, the Winnipeg Free Press and Uptown Magazine. Her fiction and creative non-fiction have been shortlisted for the Writers’ Union of Canada’s Emerging Writer Short Fiction Award, the Larry Turner Award for Creative Non-Fiction, and the Canadian Authors Association’s North of 55 Writing Contest. In 2005, she wrote a monthly humour column called “The Wedding Diaries” for the Winnipeg Free Press. Some of those details find their way into her debut novel, The Prairie Bridesmaid (Key Porter). Nia Vardalos, of My Big Fat Greek Wedding fame, calls it “a witty, sardonic, and touching story of self-discovery.” Daria Salamon lives in Winnipeg.
