Joanne Braithwaite

I’ve always been a writer and got my first paid assignment just two months after graduating from the University of British Columbia. CBC Television hired me to write and produce current affairs programs. I’ve never looked back.

My writing and television directing has won once and been nominated three times – every time my stories were submitted – for Vancouver Film and Television’s prestigious Leo Awards. I consistently receive excellent feedback for all my writing projects.

"witty and clear writing"
