Crystal Chan is a writer and editor.



My work has appeared on CBC radio and in Reader's Digest and Maisonneuve in Canada; I was also a film critic for the Montreal Mirror and Ioncinema. I've written for many other local, national, and international publications, including leading arts and culture magazines such as Sight & Sound.

Currently, I'm an editor at UBC Press. I also edit QWF Writes, an essay series published by the Quebec Writers' Federation. Before that, I managed magazine and was Managing Editor of La Scena Musicale magazine and Program Coordinator of ELAN (English-Language Arts Network).

I've juried journalism awards and been asked to speak about writing and media. I can take photos to accompany my stories (sample photography).

I'm also hired by organizations and academics to manage publishing projects. As a project manager, I find specialists and then oversee their progress. Je travaille en français aussi.

If you have five minutes, read my edible non-fiction.

If you have an hour, listen to my radio documentary, McLaren in 4D.
