Anna-Liza Kozma

Golden Thread Judge,

Anna-Liza  Kozma Anna-Liza Kozma is a producer and writer for CBC Radio Current Affairs in Toronto and a Visiting Fellow at St. Michael's College, University of Toronto.

She attended schools in Africa and England and started making tea on a local newspaper in Kent when she was 19. She has managed cunningly to stay employed in journalism ever since.

Editors have sent her on assignment to exotic places in the Middle East, the Canadian Arctic, Transylvania and Perth, Ontario and she always returns in time to bake cookies for her three children.

She trained as a journalist at the BBC and has worked as a staff producer and writer at CBC Radio for more than twenty years. Her columns, essays and features have appeared in books, journals and newspapers in Canada, England and the US.

Her favourite stories include a fire-eating English vicar who lights his altar candles by opening his mouth and a series on theologians called Truth Claims for CBC Ideas.

She holds a BA Honours from the Polytechnic of Central London (University of Westminster) in Journalism and Media Studies and an MA in English Literature from the University of Toronto.
