Mo has spent almost twenty years as an English teacher, a French teacher, and an English as an Additional Language teacher (EAL). Her years spent working with international students, travelling and exploring the world remained with her, however, and writing nonfiction was a natural fit. In 2015, Mo received her Masters in Fine Arts, at Vermont College of the Art’s prestigious Creative Non Fiction program.
Mo is the Founder of Cargo Literary, an digital platform devoted to publishing transformational travel experiences, which she edited between 2015-2020. Inspired by her own experiences, she wanted then to share the stories of others. However, between her sessional work, book projects and freelance, Cargo Lit has had to take a back seat.
Mo is the Executive Director of the PEI Writers’ Guild, and works as Artistic Director for the Wild Threads Literary Festival, a writing and publishing conference that held their inaugural event in 2019. In 2021, the event will be both in-person, and virtual.
Mo lives in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in Canada’s smallest, most beautiful province, where she is Mom to three growing children: one, a teenager who will be getting her driver’s license this year, a fortnite hero in the middle, and her baby, who will be starting kindergarten in 2021. Her husband runs a small craft brewing operation called Upstreet.
