I’m Rebecca Morris, a Montreal writer of literary fiction.
My story “Exercises au subjonctif” just won the Humber Literary Review’s 2022 Emerging Writers Fiction contest. Another story, “Foreign Bodies,” won the 2017 Malahat Review Open Season Award for Fiction and was the Malahat’s nominee for the 2018 Journey Prize. I earned Honourable Mention in Prairie Fire’s 2018 Short Fiction contest and was long-listed for Room Magazine’s 2018 Fiction contest. My short fiction has also been published in carte blanche, Hamilton Arts & Letters, FreeFall, Qwerty and the Antigonish Review.
I attended the 2019 Spring Banff Writer’s Retreat with Liz Howard and Cherie Dimaline and have taken courses and workshops through the Humber School for Writers, the Quebec Writer’s Federation and UBC’s online Creative Writing program. I’ve also taught online workshops on the writing process and narrative structure.
I’m currently working on a new novel while querying two manuscripts; a collection of interlinked stories about the staff and students at a Montreal high school and a #metoo novel set in my hometown of Guelph, Ontario.
