TL Parry-Sands has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and long-listed for a Bath Short Story Award. Her publications include The Antigonish Review, Project Calm Magazine, Fictive Dream, Reflex Fiction, National Flash Fiction Day Flash Flood, and the 2020 National Flash Fiction Day Anthology. She edits The South Shore Review, and The Blake-Jones Review, and she has studied under Dr. Alistair MacLeod, Dr. Bruce Meyer, and Adele Wiseman.

TL Parry-Sands is one of the most inventive, original, and lively short story writers working in Canada today. Her ability to approach familiar subjects in an askance manner, with tremendous craft, precision, and surprise makes her a writer to watch. As editor and publisher of The Blake Jones Review, she possesses an accuracy and honour for language that enrich the narratives of her own writing. I eagerly await her first full-length book collection of stories.
