Joyce Thierry Llewellyn is a television and film screenwriter, story editor, and an instructor in the “Writing for Film & Television Program” at the Vancouver Film School. She has written optioned, commissioned, and spec film, television, documentary, and corporate scripts. Her creative non-fiction story, When Lions Came in Brown Boxes, was a winner in the 2011 Commonwealth Short Stories competition.
Thierry Llewellyn lived in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery outside Kathmandu, Nepal, in the fall of 2010, and is presently struggling (in a non-Buddhist way; what happened to “go with the flow”?) to turn her experiences into a book. During the summer of 2011, Joyce and her husband Evan hiked the 1,600 km Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage trail from Le Puy, France, to Santiago, Spain and are happy to announce that their feet, knees, and marriage survived. For three years, she was steersperson for the North Shore Sirens, an award-winning women’s dragon boat team. This team re-enforced her love of collaborative activities and reminded her that waves can work both for and against you.
Thierry Llewellyn reviewed Stephen Reid’s book, A Crowbar In The Buddhist Garden: Writing From Prison, for the Ex Libris section of Facts and Opinions. Her profile for F&O’s Players section, LOTTA HITSCHMANOVA: Canada’s ‘Mother Teresa’ with attitude, was published in December, 2014.
