Shirin Tobie-Paul

Volunteer Facilitator

Shirin Tobie-Paul (she/her)
Ottawa, Ontario

“I attended one writing session at the Evelyn Gregory Library and fell in love with the Writers Collective of Canada, then called the Toronto Writers Collective. I knew after my first write that I wanted to become a facilitator. I told myself that if anyone suggested that I serve in this way, it would be the confirmation that I had to obey the pull. I received lots of confirming pulls and shoves.”

Shirin is a volunteer facilitator and the WCC Ottawa Chapter Lead.

Outside of her work in the WCC community, Shirin can be found writing, roaming bookstores, or napping in the sun. If you pick up a previously-loved book with sentences underlined or with notes in the margins, she has likely read that one.
