Dianah Smith






Dianah is a writer, teacher and arts educator based in Toronto. Her writing has been published in anthologies, high school textbooks, online and print. She’s currently completing her first novel.

Since 2005, she has facilitated workshops independently and also in highs schools, universities, bookstores and community organizations throughout Southern Ontario. Noticing an absence in safe and supportive writing spaces for non-mainstream writers, Dianah created a reading series (‘A’ is for Orange) and courses and workshops specifically for these communities.

She has been the recipient of numerous writing and professional development grants and has been a jury member for local and provincial arts funding organizations.
