poet and photographer living on the south bank of the Nicomekl


Christine Leviczky Riek is a poet and photographer from Surrey BC.

My poetry has been published in The Capilano Review, Pulp Literature, and Emerge17. I am a current participant in ArtSongLab 2019. I was a semi-finalist for the Capilano Review’s 2019 Biofiction Prize, the 2018 1st runner-up for Pulp Literature’s Magpie Award for Poetry, and the 2017 winner of the Robin Blaser Poetry Prize awarded by The Capilano Review. I enjoy reading at literary events and open mics in the Vancouver area.  A 2017 graduate of SFU’s The Writers’ Studio and a 2016 graduate of the Southbank Writers’ Program, I recently completed a docu-poetry manuscript, A Silkworm in Winter, about my ancestors in the Carpathian Mountains of Central Europe. My first chapbook was published in 2017, Inventory For A Voyage [da Capo sin’ al Fine], as part of the Reading The Migration Library (Light Factory Publications).

My photographs have been shown throughout the Vancouver area: in the Surrey Art Gallery, Turnbull Gallery, AlexFest, Maple Ridge ACT Gallery, The Fort Gallery, Pendulum Gallery, White Rock Community Gallery, the White Rock Pop-Up Gallery, and the SnackArt Collective in the Eastside Culture Crawl. I have contributed 300 photographs to the Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s Heritage Site Finder, a visual inventory of the city’s built heritage.
