Cathy Boyce is a writer and community worker based in the Canadian Maritimes. Cathy’s background is in social work and, as such, she brings a feminist, social justice lens to her writing. Under the freelance name, Mindful Scrawler, Cathy carves out space for marginalized voices and stories that go unheard in mainstream media. The topic of empathy is an area Cathy covers in her work both as a writer and in her community. When she is not writing, Cathy can be found cooking up plant-based dishes for her family and cuddling with her cats.
