About the Writers

Writer Meredith Hambrock.

Meredith Hambrock has worked in writing rooms on over 100 episodes of TV comedy. She most recently served as Executive Story Editor on the sitcom Corner Gas Animated where she wrote nine episodes of the Canadian Screen Award Winning series. In 2022, her episode “A Lot to Be Desired” was nominated for a Leo Award. Her debut mystery novel, Other People’s Secrets, was published in September by Crooked Lane Books and was called “audacious” and “fabulous” by the New York Times Book Review and was nominated for a Lefty Award in the Best Debut Mystery Category. Her second novel, She’s a Lamb! will be published in spring 2025 by ECW Press. She is the 2023-2024 Writer in Residence at the Saskatoon Public Library. 

Azee Amoo

Azee Amoo is a fourth-year student studying Business Economics at the University of Saskatchewan. Born and raised in Calgary, her second home has become Saskatoon after moving here for school. She’s heavily involved in the campus community, part of groups such as UNICEF USask, Peer Health and the USask Menstrual Project. A self-proclaimed creative spirit, Azee enjoys engaging with the arts and is currently working on honing her writing craft. As a copy editor for The Sheaf Publishing Society, she’s also had the chance to publish articles on topics ranging from world events to modern-day dating. This is her debut in the professional creative writing sphere. Amoo is an avid book collector (and in theory, reader as well), always open to trying new things, and nine times out of ten can be found with a different hobby than the last you saw her with.
