Paul Vermeersch had three books of poetry and a decade as a poetry editor under his belt when he started his Masters. Still, he was seeking new challenges—and found them, earning a Governor General's Gold Medal for Academic Excellence for his MFA. Since graduating, Paul has founded the Buckrider Books imprint at Wolsak & Wynn, publishing both poetry and fiction. Find out more about his experience and check out links to his work.
Yes, we have come to our last Speakeasy of the season and all our amazing readers this time have done and/or are doing their MFA's in creative writing at Guelph: Liz Howard, Becky Blake, Ashish Seth, Jacquelyn Ross, Hajer Mirwali and Oubah Osman.
