Sina Queyras

Sina Queyras (born 1963) is a Canadian poet. Her third collection of poetry, Lemon Hound, received the Pat Lowther Award and a Lambda Literary Award.

In 2005 she edited Open Field: 30 Contemporary Canadian Poets for Persea Books, the first anthology of Canadian poetry to be published by a U.S. press. She later edited Canadian Strange, a folio of contemporary Canadian writing for Drunken Boat, where she is a contributing editor. From 2005 to 2007 Queyras co-curated the belladonna* reading series in New York. Her most recent poetic work, Expressway, was written mainly in Calgary, while she was serving as Markin-Flanagan Writer-in-Residence at the University of Calgary.[1]

She published her first novel, Autobiography of Childhood, in 2011. The book was a shortlisted finalist for the First Novel Award.

Her work has been published widely in journals and anthologies including Joyland: A hub for short fiction. She teaches creative writing at Concordia University in Montreal, and has taught at Haverford College and Rutgers University.
