Laura Swart

Laura Swart is passionate about writing and teaching. She taught academic writing at the University of Calgary for twenty years, encouraging students to move their writing from the sterile walls of the classroom to the arenas of publication and exhibition.

She is Founder and Director of I-AM, a faith-based ESL program that uses story and song to teach the intricacies of English to refugees. Laura’s degrees and research in Education and Philosophy have shaped her pedagogy, and the theories of Hans Gadamer in particular have woven themselves into her thinking, her teaching, and her writing.
