Biosketch

A Maritimer who grew up in New Brunswick, then spent fifteen years in Montreal, I did graduate degrees at Concordia University and the Université de Montréal before moving to Halifax in 1990 to teach at Saint Mary’s. Since then I have coordinated our Creative Writing program. Besides workshop classes in the writing of poetry, fiction, and personal essay-writing, I teach courses in poetry, the short story, Canadian and American literature, and environmental studies. My teaching is grounded in experience as a poet with seven collections and five chapbooks published, along with two books of prose nature writing. I’ve also edited selected volumes of poetry by the Canadian poets Don Domanski, Robert Gibbs, Dorothy Roberts, and James Reaney, and am currently editing the complete poems of Alden Nowlan.
