Who we are: Lou

Meet the members of the Crabapple Mews Collective.

Inge / Jane / Judy / E. D. / Lou

Working at the intersection of technology and art for over 30 years, Lou Morin specializes in content development—from database design, museum cataloguing and website consulting, to book publishing, graphic design and editing.

As an intern in Paris with the National Museums of France, Lou wrangled her first website in 1994. There she researched and wrote a 15-page online museum exhibit on the history of l’École nationale supérieure des Beaux-arts (ENSBA) and its Prix de Rome contest. The completed product was hosted on the Ministry of Culture’s website.

From 2007 to 2010, as general manager of NeWest Press, she steered the literary publisher through its first forays into e-books and social media. Most recently a web content strategist for the Alberta government, she drew on her Swiss-army-knife skill set to connect people with online services.

In her “writing lab”, Lou has experimented with literary nonfiction. One of her pieces was published in Writing Menopause: An Anthology of Fiction, Poetry and Creative Nonfiction, a literary anthology published by Inanna Publications in spring 2017.

The most successful scientist thinks like a poet—wide-ranging, sometimes fantastical—and works like a bookkeeper.
