About Libby

Hi, I’m Libby.

A compulsive in-real-life collaborator, I’ve spent nearly a decade building incubators and communities of writers and creators and professional women, with the express purpose of creating contexts in which creative endeavours can thrive and be realized, and in which unique voices can be heard and celebrated.

I’m also a prize-winning fiction writer, editor and teacher (a ‘story mechanic’) who has learned how to analyze and quantify the fundamental elements of stories. And I’ve observed that the magic of words and stories is that they have enormous power to create a sense of both belonging and empowerment, and to incite change—both in the world and within ourselves.
