Fawn Parker

Fawn Parker is a novelist, publisher, and literary agent for new and emerging authors. She is the author of Set-Point (2019) and Dumb-Show (2021), both published by ARP Books.

In reviewing Set-Point, novelist Joan Thomas said “Parker’s sensibility is contemporary, smart and funny; fans of auto-fiction by international writers like Ben Lerner or Elif Batuman will love her. In fact, the central character, Lucy Frank, is writing a parody Seinfeld script featuring Karl Ove Knausgaard.”

Fawn’s short story, “FEED MACHINE,” was long-listed for the 2020 McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize. She was the recipient of the Adam Penn Gilders Award for Fiction (2019) and Concordia University’s Irving Layton Award for Fiction (2017). Her writing has also appeared in EVENT Magazine, Joyland, The Puritan, carte blanche, Vallum, and other publications.

As the founder of the Parker Agency, she represents new and emerging Canadian authors.

Fawn has a Master’s Degree in English, Creative Writing, from the University of Toronto. Her third novel WHAT WE BOTH KNOW is forthcoming with McClelland & Stewart in Spring 2022.
