Jane Harris Zsovan BW-0972 Jane Harris (Harris-Zsovan) is a Canadian author, journalist, and writing instructor. As a writer, she moves easily between literary, popular, academic and public relations writing. Her published books, columns, and articles distil complex research into engaging scenes and easily understood messages. As a writing coach and workshop presenter, she is an effective and empathetic communicator with people of varying ages and lifestyles.

Jane’s latest creative non-fiction, Finding Home in the Promised Land, a personal history of homelessness and social exile in Canada, is set to be released in 2015 by J. Gordon Shilllingford Publishing.

Eugenics and the Firewall: Canada’s Nasty Little Secret (J.Gordon Shillingford Publishing Inc. 2010), was her first book by a literary publisher. (http://www.jgshillingford.com/shop-books/eugenics-and-the-firewall/)

She has also contributed to two Canadian anthologies: “Jessie’s Generation: Canada’s Firebrands of Mercy and Justice” in Hot Apple Cider: Words to Stir the Heart and Warm the Soul (That’s Life! Communications 2008), and “Wen-Dizing the West” in Taking Care of Business (HB Fenn, 1997).

She self-published her first book, Stars Appearing: The Galts’ Vision of Canada (Volumes), in 2006.

She writes for national and regional periodicals about business, history, faith, politics and social issues. She is a member of the Writers’ Union of Canada and the Writers’ Guild of Alberta.

She is available for speaking engagements and teaches writing workshops as an artist partner at CASA Lethbridge. Previously, she taught continuing education courses in writing and publishing at Lethbridge College.
