The HSW Literary Agency


In Memory of Karen Hill, 1958-2014

The HSW Literary Agency is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Karen Hill, our client since 2012. Karen leaves behind her daughter, mother, and brothers, as well as sisters-in-law and several neices and nephews. Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this difficult time.

Karen was a fiercely honest writer who both challenged and engaged readers through her intelligence and candour. Her voice was compelling, her insight fresh, and she tackled difficult subjects with bravery and aplomb. She will be missed by all of us here.

In her memory, we renew our commitment to Karen’s writing and to fulfilling her dream of publishing Café Babnussa, her debut novel. Others may wish to remember her through the Humber School for Writers, which is raising funds to establish a scholarship in her honour. Memorial donations may be sent to The Humber School for Writers (Attention Antanas Sileika: “In memory of Karen Hill”) at 3199 Lake Shore Blvd. W., Toronto, Ontario, M8V 1K8.
