The fishwife

March 06th, 2023

Born and raised on the prairies, Margot Fedoruk knew little about seafood. That all changed when she went to BC at the age of 23, met and married a sea urchin diver, moved to Gabriola Island and become a west coaster with a love of the ocean’s bounty. She also became a writer and book reviewer with articles published in the Globe and Mail, Quill & Quire, BC BookWorld, Ormbsy Review and Portal. In October, 2022 Fedoruk published Cooking Tips for Desperate Fishwives: An Island Memoir (Heritage House $22.95) that fuses her love and survival stories with recipes from various stages of her life (ranging from old favourites like vegetarian lasagna and blintzes to clam chowder and baked oysters–and, being an artisanal soap maker, she even includes a recipe for homemade soap for good measure). Fedoruk holds a BA from the University of Winnipeg and a BA from Vancouver Island University where she majored in Creative Writing. She was awarded the Barry Broadfoot Award for creative nonfiction and journalism and a Meadowlarks Award for fiction, both from VIU. 9781772033953
