To the web page of me, Frances Boyle. I'm an award-winning writer of poetry and fiction based in Ottawa, Ontario.


My second poetry collection, This White Nest, from Quattro Books came out late in 2019. I was looking forward to touring with it in 2020 but -- like many events -- they've been cancelled. You can support me by buying a copy directly from me.


Seeking Shade, my short story collection, is now available for pre-order!

My novella, Tower, from Fish Gotta Swim Editions, published in 2018, received some (very positive) reviews and made a list of 2018 faves - see the Media page.


I've also published another full-length collection of poetry, as well as several chapbooks and many poems and stories in magazines and anthologies. 

" We shall not cease from exploration

  And the end of all our exploring 

  Will be to arrive where we started

  And know the place for the first time. "

            T. S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"
