Ann Shin

Ann Shin’s fiction and poetry have appeared in anthologies and magazines in Canada and the US. Her first poetry collection, The Last Thing Standing, has now been followed by The Family China (Brick), a sensitive inquiry into what we bring with us as we travel to new countries and to new stages in our lives. Also an award-winning filmmaker, Ann’s recent documentary, The Defector: Escape from North Korea, follows the escape of a woman across five countries. Raised on a mushroom farm in BC’s Fraser Valley, Ann Shin now lives in Toronto with her husband and two daughters.
