Glenna Turnbull  

People often ask - are you a writer or a photographer?

The answer is, both.

My goal is to create images that tell stories and stories that create images as vivid as a photograph.

My short fiction has appeared in The New Quarterly, Room of One's Own, Canadian Stories, Cliterature, Luna Station Quarterly and several other online publications. My CNF has been read on CBC and been featured in HomeMakers and I had my own column covering the arts for close to 15 years. I was shortlisted for the Peter Hinchcliffe Fiction Award and Event magazine's Let  Your Hair Down contest and have a BA from UBC majoring in ENG/CRWR. I live in a wildfire zone in BC and am currently seeking representation for my debut novel.

My photography clients have ranged from Scotia Bank and Cirque du Soleil to ballet, opera and theatre companies, gracing the pages of magazines across the country and around the world.

I also work as a stained glass artist and you can find my stained glass website here at:


if A picture paints a thousand words, then what kind of image does a thousand words create?
