Jenny Gates

As a professional writer and editor in Australia, I co-authored several scientific catalogues and was editor of international scientific publications. Since arriving in Winnipeg, I’ve mostly worked as a substantive book editor, and I also write screenplays, stage plays, books, poetry, speeches and stories. Other interests include photography, music, reading, walking, and coffee with friends.
