Area of expertise


Kim Dias is originally from South Africa, grew up in Asia, and moved to Canada in 2008. She graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Arts in writing, specialising in fiction. During her time at UVic, she worked with the literary journal This Side of West as fiction editor. Wherever she is and whatever she’s doing, she’d probably rather be on the beach with a good book.

In her work, she explores themes of family, religion, queerness, belonging, sexuality, and eroticism. If you want to make her day, ask her to show you a picture of her dog.
