Rebecca Diem writes hopeful speculative fiction and poetry. Her work includes contributions to Write magazine and Tor.com, and the steampunk novella series Tales of the Captain Duke. She is the host of Read The North, a radio/podcast miniseries on the history of CanLit as told by Toronto’s favourite book festival, The Word On The Street, where she has worked as the resident comms wizard since 2019.
Born and raised in Grey County, Rebecca now lives with her fiancé (& frequent collaborator) in an old music school in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood. She is the grateful recipient of an Explore & Create grant from the Canada Council for the Arts for her current book-in-progress, Greenlight.
