Ann Pelletier-Topping was born in Montreal, Canada, and has lived in the UK since 1989. She has been writing since 2012 but her interest in poetry began in 2015 while doing a Creative Writing module at the Open University. Writing and reading poetry have since become a necessity and a little haven of happiness. In 2018, two of her poems were published in Moor Poets’ fourth anthology. She belongs to a Poetry Seminar Group led by Greta Stoddart of the Poetry School. When she’s not writing, she teaches French in Totnes.
