Lori Shwydky

Lori Shwydky graduated Vancouver Island University (VIU) in 2016 with a BA in Creative Writing. Since then she's wasted no time putting what she learned to use.

At VIU what excited her most was the courses that focused on publishing, so after graduation she went right to work creating Rebel Mountain Press in her home town of Nanoose Bay.

As publisher and managing editor, Shwydky focused her business on putting out anthologies. Since its launch in 2015, Rebel Mountain Press has put out two teen anthologies under the series title of In Our Own Voice – collections of Vancouver Island young writer's work who are in grades 8-12. Recently, she added another anthology to the series: In Our Own Aboriginal Voice, a collection of stories and poems written by Aboriginal writers and artists in BC. Read more
