Ann-Margret Hovsepian is an award-winning Montreal-based writer and illustrator, with over 25 years of professional experience in various areas of the publishing world. She has written hundreds of articles for dozens of different Canadian and U.S. print periodicals and is a best-selling author, co-author, or illustrator of multiple books. She also teaches about freelancing and in 2019 helped launch the Christian Freelance Writers Network. She is Managing Editor of CFWN’s blog and is working with a team to develop resources for writers, freelancers, and people who now find themselves working from home.
Her fifth book project, Restore My Soul, is an exciting devotional colouring book that was released in April 2016 and sat on the Christian Bestsellers list for three consecutive months. She contributed 31 original illustrations to Inkspirations for Breast Cancer Survivors (HCI Books, October 2017) and five original illustrations each to the popular Whatever Is Lovely and Everything Beautiful colouring books (WaterBrook Multnomah). Next up in that series (now under the Ink & Willow imprint) is Choose Joy, coming out in September, which features Ann-Margret’s artwork and lettering on the cover, as well as several original illustrations and more of her lettering in the book. And Ann-Margret wrote the inspirational text in 52 Weeks of Gratitude, also by Ink & Willow, coming out in October. You can pre-order these two books from now!
In addition to her writing and drawing adventures, Ann-Margret has spoken at or led workshops at several professional or ministry events. She was the keynote speaker at the InScribe Christian Writers’ Fellowship Fall Conference in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, in September 2018 and taught a workshop on freelancing at the Evangelical Press Association annual convention in Oklahoma City in April 2019.
