Biographie / Histoire administrative

Novelist, story writer, essayist and translator, Gail Scott's writing plays across the boundary of English Canadian and French Canadian culture as well as exploring the boundaries of narrative form and theory. She is the author of the novels "Heroine", "My Paris", "Main Brides", the short-story collection "Spare Parts" and essay collection "Spaces Like Stairs". "Main Brides" was selected as one of the 10 best novels of the century by the Montréal Gazette, both "Heroine" and "Main Brides" were shortlisted for the QSPELL award for best novel and "My Paris" was named one of the ten best novels of 1999 by Quill & Quire. Scott graduated from Ottawa Teachers College and taught for Toronto Public School Board in the early 1960's. Later, she began her writing career as a journalist working for a number of Canada's leading English newspapers (particularly covering Quebec for English Canada). She is a founding member of the Quebec cultural magazine Spirale and worked on Last Post. Scott is also a Governor General's Award nominee for her translation of Michael Delisle's "Le Désarroi du matelot". Her work as an experimental feminist writer led her to work with a group of theorists who published «La théorie, un dimanche» (of which Nicole Brossard and Louky Bersianik were also prominent contributors) and to work on the editorial collective of Tessera (in which Daphne Marlatt, Barbara Godard and Nicole Brossard were also involved). She is a contributing editor of the Narrative Website Magazine put out through the Poetry Centre at San Francisco State University. Scott was involved with the NFB film fragments of a conversation on language. She is also author of "In October's Eye", an as of yet unpublished work on Quebec culture and the "Quiet Revolution". Scott was writer-in-residence at the University of Alberta at Edmonton (1994-1995).
