Elisabeth de Mariaffi


Elisabeth de Mariaffi’s debut story collection, How to Get Along With Women, was longlisted for the 2013 Giller Prize. Her poetry and short fiction have been widely published in magazines across Canada, and she’s one of the wild minds behind the highly original Toronto Poetry Vendors, a small press that sells single poems by established Canadian poets through toonie vending machines. In 2013, her story “Kiss Me Like I’m the Last Man On Earth” was shortlisted for a National Magazine Award. Elisabeth is currently based in St. John’s, where she lives with the poet George Murray and their combined brood of four children — making them CanLit’s answer to the Brady Brunch.
