Eve Nixen was born and raised on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of Vancouver. She moved to Montreal at the age of 18 where she spent the next ten years learning how to be a true ‘Montrealer’ in the chain-smoking city of bike thieves and social outrage.
Eve is searching for the stories that are wound up within her DNA. She hopes to uncover the ones that lay in slumber and shake them out of her bones and onto the pages. She is also spellbound by both the natural landscapes of the urban jungle and rural communities around Turtle Island. She plans to continue writing fiction, poetry, non-fiction as a means of exploring her identity as a settler in these environments.
Eve’s first self-published chapbook ‘Day Dreams of A Dull Girl’ is a short collection of writing that weaves real life experience with blatant lies and exaggerations.
