Ivan Coyote is the award winning author of eleven books, the creator of four short films, and has released three albums that combine storytelling with music. Ivan is a seasoned stage performer and long-time road dog, and over the last eighteen years has become an audience favourite at storytelling, writer's, film, poetry, and folk music festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam. 

Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity in their work, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely ­honed timing of a gifted storyteller. Ivan's stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world. Their work is on reading lists in universities across the continent and beyond, and in public high school libraries everywhere. Ivan truly believes in the transformative power of personal narrative, for both the teller and the listener.

Join Ivan in this workshop designed to help you get your own story out of your head and your heart and onto the page. Please bring a pen, some paper, your questions and your own brave heart.

Ivan's 11th book, Tomboy Survival Guide, was released in the fall of 2016 with Arsenal Pulp Press.
