Elena Bentley has lived in Saskatchewan all her life—with the exception of a two-year gap in which she attended the University of Toronto to complete her master’s degree in English literature. After returning home to Saskatchewan last year, she has focused on writing poetry. Elena has recently been published in untethered magazine. An amateur book reviewer, and a book-hoarding bibliophile, is looking to become more involved in, and contributing to, the literary scene in Saskatchewan. Elena Bentley currently works for the Metis-Nation Saskatchewan and she lives just outside of Saskatoon.
