LEAH SANDALS

Creative Practice

After focusing on photography, performance and video in art school, Leah now, as a creative practice, writes short fiction and poetry.

In 2018, she is reading at the Bi Arts Festival, the world's largest celebration of bisexual voices in arts and culture. The reading takes place during the festival's Author Showcase at Glad Day Books, itself the world's oldest surviving LGBTQ bookstore. Find out more on the event's webpage.

In 2017, her short story “The Geologist” was published in the Fall issue of Freefall. That same season, her poem “Nursery Rhymes for January 21, 2017” was published in the anthology Nasty Women and Bad Hombres, edited by Deena November and Nina Padlof for Lascaux Editions.

In 2015, Leah’s short story “Reunion” won the Penguin Random House Student Award for Fiction from the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, and it was published in the chapbook Three.

Leah's work on a related manuscript in progress has been supported by grants from the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council.
