Eliza Robertson -- from UVic to the University of East Anglia

At the Canadian Authors Awards luncheon in Toronto, Eliza Robertson read from her short- listed story collection Wallflowers. The event was part of the Canadian Writers' Summit.

After graduating from UVic, this talented former Vancouverite completed her Master's in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia. Fellow UEA writing grads include literary giants Ian McEwan, Margaret Drabble and Rose Tremain. One of the program's founders was the great post-war comic novelist Angus Wilson, once of Bletchley Park.

Eliza Robertson lives and writes in Norwich now. Handy to London, she enjoys having plenty of opportunities to meet publishers and network with fellow authors.
