Hi there! This is me, Aura Clift.
I am an Italian-Canadian writer. Born and raised in northeast Italy, and now based in Surrey, Canada, on the traditional territories of the Katzie, Semiahmoo and Kwantlen First Nations.
My work comprises literary fiction—with a touch of paranormal— and creative nonfiction in the form of short personal narratives. In both genres, I strive to weave together the rich sense of folklore I inherited from the women in my family with the stunning and often mysterious natural world.
Good stories have always been fuel for my imagination, as such, I am a long-time literature enthusiast. I have a BA in Modern and Contemporary Western Languages and Literature from the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. My passion for literature and writing are what led me to my past roles as a Library Assistant (in Italy) and Marketing Manager for Christiane’s Lyceum of Literature and Art (in Vancouver, Canada). In both roles, I had the pleasure of working with readers and writers of all ages and at different stages of their literary careers.
Presently, I am a mom to two very busy boys and a four-legged old lady. When I am not entertaining my children, you can find me working on my novel and helping other writers on critiquematch.com.
Thank you for stopping by my website. I hope you find what you’re looking for. If you have any questions or would like to connect, I’d love to hear from you.
