Academic and Professional Work
Dr. Nora Gold received her BSW from McGill University and her MSW and PhD (Social Work, 1990) from University of Toronto. From 1990-2000 she was a tenured professor of social work at McMaster University, and left full-time academia in order to have more time for fiction writing. For the next eighteen years she was affiliated (first as an Associate Scholar and then for six years as its Writer-in-Residence) with OISE/University of Toronto’s Centre for Women’s Studies in Education. This centre closed in 2018, but Gold continues to coordinate the highly regarded reading series that she established there, the Wonderful Women Writers Series, now housed at the Toronto Public Library (Deer Park Branch).
