BRIGETTE DEPAPE is a Winnipeg based writer. When she was 11, she received a wonderful gift – a journal from her big sister. This led to her love of writing. She studied Creative Writing at The University of Ottawa. She has written three plays for fringe festivals across Canada. Her work explores the themes of healing, sustainability, joy, and love. Her first collection of poetry will be published by At Bay Press. She is happy to call Winnipeg home.
