About

I'm a professional poet, creative writer and creative writing instructor. As of this summer 2021, I'm looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment or house, ideally with a separate office/study space in addition to 1 bedroom and living room, but I am flexible to many layout possibilities. I am interested in having quiet space to work and create, as well as some form of access to out of door space (preferably including some garden area, but even a balcony). Currently since August 2019 I am renting a two-bedroom condo in Toronto's Kensington Market, while working on grant-funded writing projects and teaching at Ryerson and with the MFA in CW at University of Guelph-Humber. During his times in Toronto, my university-going son stays with me. I have two other adult children who live in Toronto. I will be interested again in possibilities here for the end of summer 2021 onward. I would most like to be located in the area of Toronto I know best, Little Italy/ Little Portugal or surrounding areas (where I have lived for the better part of over 20 years) but I'm also open to considering all areas of the city for the right situation. ideally, I would like to find a situation that could continue into the long term.

About Me

I am a professional poet, writer and creative writing instructor (currently at Ryerson University). I was Canada Council Writer in Residence 2016/2017 at Western University, the same at the University of Alberta in 2017/2018, and Distinguished Visitor at University College, University of Toronto in 2018-2019. I am living in a Sabbatical Homes rental in Kensington Market through to the end of August 2022, and will be seeking a new sublet to begin Sept 2022 -- to continue long term ideally. I will be living by myself with occasional visits /holidays from my son who is at Concordia in the fall/ next year. I have two other young adult children living in Toronto, and it is my preference to stay in Toronto, but I am also open to other locations.
