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, and Seeking Shade, my short story collection, will be released in mid-August 2020. It 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"
