LEILA MARSHY is of Palestinian-Newfoundland heritage, which is what she blames for the fact that her life is all over the place. She’s been a filmmaker, a baker, an app designer, a radio producer, a marketer, a chicken farmer, and longtime editor of the online culture magazine Rover Arts. She worked for the Palestinian Red Crescent then founded the Friends of Hutchison Street, a groundbreaking community group bringing Hasidic and non-Hasidic neighbours together in dialogue. She was longtime editor of Rover Arts, and has had stories and poetry published in journals and anthologies in Canada and the US. Her novel The Philistine [LLP, 2018] was published earlier this year.
