About

Blog photo (2)I am a folklorist and a storyteller. This is where I share the beauty and wonder of my home place. I am currently the Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Officer for Heritage Saskatchewan. Previously, I worked as a community engagement animateur for SaskCulture and as a social media coordinator for the National Film Board of Canada’s Grasslands Project.

This blog was borne out of my homesickness when I was living in Newfoundland studying Folklore. Though I loved my time on the Rock, the distance from home made me realize for the first time how much I had been shaped by my prairie roots.

Born and raised on a farm in the deep south of Saskatchewan, I am passionate about the cultural heritage of the rural prairies and I enjoy uncovering the hidden stories of our shared landscape. As a writer first and foremost, this blog is where I give free rein to my creative impulses, so you’ll find a mix of content, from folklore and history and my experiments with photography, to musings about my personal connection to this place which I am blessed to call home.

To learn more about me, see The Great White Winter and Chasing the Light.  To learn more about this blog, check out The Gap No. 39.

To contact me, email kristin@fromthegap.com. I welcome all questions and comments.

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I just found your blog and it is always exciting to meet other prairie/farm girl writers… I will keep exploring…
    Also, you might be interested in Wonderscape–a creative wellness retreat I am planning (www.wonderscaperetreat.wordpress.com). I am from Yorkton but the retreat is over the border in MB.
    Take care,
    Tricia
