Eunice Scarfe writes and teaches, teaches and writes. In Canada, she is affiliated with the Faculty of Extension at the University of Alberta in Edmonton where she has been teaching since 1994 for the Women’s Words program which she helped design. Through her company, Saga Seminars, she teaches from coast to coast, including seminars at the Banff Centre, Fielding Institute and Harvard Medical School as well as a small town of Jefferson in Maine and the Yukon town of Whitehorse.
Her short stories have been published in such magazines as Malahat Review (University of Victoria) and Matrix (Quebec) as well as in anthologies including Best Stories in Canada, Love Stories of One Kind or Another, Double Bond and Alberta Re-Bound. She is winner of fiction prizes from Descant (Toronto), Prism International at UBC and Event (U of Alaska), and the recipient of grants from Canada Council and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
Eunice did a Master of Arts in Teaching English at the University of Chicago and an MA in English with a Creative Writing thesis at the University of Alberta. She hastens to add that writers and writing can blossom and flourish without a single workshop or course or degree in creative writing; she finds, in fact, that students who have not formally studied literature have just as much an advantage as those who have.
