Annette Lapointe is a fiction writer and academic living in Treaty 8 territory, on the traditional lands of the Beaver people. She has lived in rural Saskatchewan, Quebec City, St John’s, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, and South Korea, and now lives in Grande Prairie, in northern Alberta, Canada.
She earned the requisite PhD in English, with special areas in the history of gender and technology, contemporary literature, and science fiction. She continues to explore these areas, and has a special love for Indigenous literature and both fiction and nonfiction engaging with topics of decolonization.
She was lucky enough to be given the option to work creatively, and has pursued that with enthusiastic fury. She has published two acclaimed novels, Stolen and Whitetail Shooting Gallery, and a short story collection, You Are Not Needed Now. Her poetry has been published in such venues as Other Voices magazine, Prism International, sub-TERRAIN magazine, and elsewhere.
In her copious free time, she edits The Waggle magazine online.
