Théodora Armstrong’s first volume of short stories, Clear Skies, No Wind, 100% Visibility examines human frailty in its many manifestations, and is set against the divergent landscape of British Columbia ̶ from the splendours of nature to its fearsome strengths, from urban grease and grit to dry, desert towns. It was a finalist for the Danuta Gleeb Award and the Ethel Wilson Prize.
Ms Armstrong’s stories have garnered many shortlist nominations, and “Whale Stories” won the 2008 Western Magazine Award for Fiction. Her stories have appeared in many top literary journals, and two anthologies. Ms. Armstrong holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia, where she now teaches. She also often has a camera in her hands; photographs from her worldwide travels have appeared in many journals and newspapers. Ms Armstrong is at work on her first novel, and lives in Vancouver with her husband and two children.
