Amy Crandall – This Week’s Feature for Words North

The 2018 Words North writing festival will showcase regional writers of all ages. On Sunday, September 30th, a student reading will be held at the Dawson Creek Public Library emceed by Jeanette Lynes, Director of the MFA in Writing at the University of Saskatchewan. If you are a high school or college student who would like to share your writing, contact Donna Kane at .

Here is a look at just one of our region’s talented young writers who will be reading at this event.

Amy Crandall is a seventeen-year-old avid reader and novelist born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. She began writing in elementary school, publishing her first story on at the age of thirteen. With the support of her loved ones and newfound friends on the site, Amy continued to share her thoughts and interests in the form of storytelling.

Before her days, she was published in A Celebration of Poets – Summer 2012 (Creative Communication, 2012) for her poem, “My Garden.”That experience only drove her desire to further pursue writing. Her first full-length novel, Delusions, was a featured story on, reaching #7 in the mystery/thriller genre, and surpassing 115,000 reads before its publishing.

When she isn’t envisioning a new story plot, Amy can be found camping with loved ones, getting lost in a great read, jamming to her favourite tunes, or giving in to her craving of Timmies’ iced lemonades.
