For several years Susan Helwig produced and hosted the literary programme In other words at radio station CKLN-FM in Toronto. Her broadcasting stint closed with a flourish as she talked to Yann Martel about Life of Pi. Her work has been widely published and anthologized throughout North America, from ACTA victoriana to Zygote, most recently the Silver Boomers Anthology, Hammered Out and The Windsor Review. She is a member of the Draft Collective which runs a reading series in the Leslieville area of Toronto. Her first book, Catch the Sweet, was published by Seraphim Editions in 2001. Her second collection, Pink Purse Girl, was launched by Wolsak and Wynn in September 2006.
