WELCOME to The Amber Typewriter, a place of creativity and critical thinking.
Erica McKeen is an emerging writer of poetry and weird, speculative fiction. She lives in London, Ontario, Canada, where she received her BA in English literature and creative writing from Western University. Her work has appeared in Minola Review, The Quilliad, Word Hoard, and elsewhere. She received the Lillian Kroll prize in creative writing for her story, “Our Eyes, Our Tongue,” as well as the first- and third-place Occasus prizes. When she isn’t writing, Erica is teaching, travelling, going to school, or all of the above. She can’t seem to stay away from higher education, or stay in any one place for very long.
Apart from the more self-explanatory categories of Living the Creative Life, Social Criticism, and Mental Illness, the Amber Typewriter includes Quotations, an ongoing list of quotations from books Erica has read and is reading; Travel, writing that outlines her experiences in Japan; and 101 Reasons to Keep Living, a bi-weekly blog series focusing on the beautiful things in life that make living worthwhile.
