KATE INGLIS is an author and photographer living on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. Her fourth book, Notes for the Everlost: A Field Guide to Grief (Shambhala, September 2018) won the Evelyn Richardson Non-Fiction Literary Award at the Atlantic Book Awards. She also writes children’s fiction, including award-nominated novels and picture books, and has been featured in poetry anthologies as well as co-authoring a best-selling book on the craft of photography.

Kate's writing through the birth of her twins, subsequent loss, and beyond was internationally recognized. In 2008, she founded Glow in the Woods, a groundbreaking community for bereaved parents, and for six years she headlined the annual Walk to Remember in Edmonton, Alberta, one of the largest and most preeminent memorial events for bereaved parents in Canada. In 2012, she gave a talk at TEDx Halifax called "Parallelism," in which she explored of the similarities between the often solitary journeys of creative work and healing from grief.
