BIOGRAPHY
Stephanie Bolster was born in Burnaby, British Columbia, and received a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing from the University of British Columbia. In 1996, she received the Bronwen Wallace Award for Poetry, an award reserved for promising young poets who have yet to publish a collection of poetry. In 1998, Bolster's first published collection, White Stone: The Alice Poems, won the Governor General's Award. White Stone examines the life of Alice Liddell, the girl on whom the Alice in Wonderland story was based. Bolster teaches creative writing at Concordia University in Montreal.

The Canadian Women Poets website is co-owned and maintained by Marilyn Rose and Erica Kelly,
