Candas went on to edit and manage the monthly arts newspaper The Edmonton Bullet (1983-88) and in 1991, became a founding partner of Wooden Door and Associates, a professional communications company. The following year, Candas was founding member of The Books Collective, an independent trade publisher, which included roles as publisher and editor-in-chief of Tesseract Books (an imprint of The Books Collective) and River Books. Between 1990 and 1992, Candas held numerous Writer in Residences including with the Edmonton Public Library (1990), the St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan Public Libraries (1991) and the Leighton Artists Colony (1992). She became an educator of professional writing programs and writing-related courses and workshops for Grant MacEwan College, University of Alberta Faculty of Extension and Metro Continuing Education, and a Sessional Instructor for MacEwan University’s Bachelor of Communication Studies program.

Candas’s range as a writer includes fiction and nonfiction, short and long form, as well as journalism and advocacy, television and theatre scripts, magazine and newspaper articles and technical writing and manuals. Her published works include Machine Sex: And Other Stories (1988), Black Wine (1996), Vanilla and Other Stories (2000), A Paradigm of Earth (2001) and has contributed to the Tesseracts anthology series.
