Bernadette Wagner grew up on a small family farm forty-five minutes north of Regina, Saskatchewan. The gently rolling parkland instilled in her a love of land, the spirit of the prairies, and a commitment to community. She is a multi-genre writer whose work has been featured in journals and anthologies, newspapers and magazines, on radio and television, film and the web, as well as in schools, on stages and in the streets.

She’s received a Saskatchewan Writers Guild Short Manuscript Award for Children’s Literature and a Saskatchewan Book Awards nomination for her collection of poetry, This hot place (Thistledown Press, 2010). And she’s been granted Emerging Artist Awards from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Saskatchewan Arts Board. She has served on the boards of several organizations including the Regina Women’s Community Centre and the Sage Hill Writing Experience. She is currently the Chair of the Cathedral Village Arts Festival and the inaugural writer-in-residence at the Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre.

    Haha! Thanks, Sheena. I’ve always had a place in my heart for you. Reading your blogposts, I’m thinking that maybe it was Land talking to me, telling me this woman’s a good one. Keep writing, my friend!
