Geneviève Gravel-Renaud was born in Montreal in 1984. She earned a master’s degree in Creative Writing from Université du Québec à Montréal in 2010 and published her first poetry book, Ce qui est là derrière, with La Peuplade in 2012. Her writing has also appeared in the magazines Exit and Moebius. After working for a few years as a copy-editor, she now devotes her time to her kids and to her writing projects. Her poetry focuses on the objects and relationships of everyday life, in a desire to make this space a place for memories in which to settle, and then successfully leave from.
