Sylvia Maultash Warsh's picture

Sylvia Maultash Warsh

Sylvia Maultash Warsh was born in Stuttgart, Germany, and immigrated to Canada when she was four years old. Her parents were both born in Krakow and survived the Holocaust, though much of the family perished. She is also interested in archaeology and art, two themes that appear in the fifteen short stories she has written, six of which have been published. About half of the sixty poems she has written have also been published. She has taught creative writing to seniors for the Toronto District School Board since 1989. The learning has been reciprocal since she has benefitted from hearing the stories of their lives. Her husband, a psychiatrist, is her consultant for any medical information she requires for her physician-protagonist, Rebecca Temple.
