Jenn Edwards

Freelance Writer


I am a freelance writer specializing in the performing arts. Originally from Vancouver, I earned a BA in English Literature and a BFA in Dance, both from Simon Fraser University in 2010. I have spent the last decade working as a contemporary dancer, choreographer, and teacher. I am also passionate about film, indie theatre, music, yoga, and figure skating. I am a regular contributor to Dance International Magazine, and have also written for Dance Collection Danse Magazine, The Berlin Film Journal, and Berlin Logs. In addition to articles, I write profiles, reviews, biographies, grant applications, blog posts, artist statements, and promotional materials.

Cursed with wanderlust, I have lived in Vancouver, Berlin, Vienna, Toronto, and Newfoundland, and have toured the world on dance contracts. I'm always looking to explore new territory, concepts, and ideas, both on and off the page.
