Pickle Me This


DSC_0962Pickle Me This is written and edited by me, Kerry Clare.

I am a reader, National Magazine Award-nominated writer, editor & a world famous would-be pickler after all these years. My book, The M Word: Conversations About Motherhood, was published by Goose Lane Editions in April 2014. You can read rave reviews and learn more about The M Word here.

I read and write in Toronto, where I live with my husband, Stuart, and our daughters, Harriet and Iris. I edit the Canadian books website 49thShelf, and teach The Art of Blogging at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies.

My essays, reviews and short fiction have been published in several Canadian newspapers and journals (see below), and I hold a Creative Writing MA from the University of Toronto. My essay “Love is a Let-Down” was awarded an honourable mention in the Personal Journalism category at the 2011 National Magazine Awards, and appears in the anthology Best Canadian Essays 2011. I am also author of A History of Woods Canada, a coffee table book portraying the story of the iconic outdoors brant; the book was published by ECW Press in 2015.
