Dorothy Woodend is the culture editor for The Tyee. Born in Vancouver, Dorothy was raised on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake, where nothing ever happened. She and her twin sister hightailed to Vancouver after graduating, where they lived on bags of frozen french fries and worked a series of crappy jobs.
Dorothy holds degrees in English from Simon Fraser University and film animation from Emily Carr University. She has worked in many different cultural disciplines, including producing contemporary dance and new music concerts, running a small press, programming film festivals, as well as writing for newspapers and magazines across Canada and the U.S.
Dorothy is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the Vancouver Film Critics Circle, and is the senior festival advisor for DOXA Documentary Film Festival in Vancouver.
She won the Silver Medal for Best Column at the Digital Publishing Awards in 2019 and 2020 and was nominated for a National Magazine Award for Best Column in 2019. In 2020, Dorothy was awarded the Max Wyman Award for Critical Writing.
