Back in another century, I ran away to join the circus. At least, I did the "writer" equivalent when I quit high school to become a poet and, in general, a writer.

I began my career as a junior reporter at The Calgary Herald newspaper, a job for which both my editors and I agreed I was not particularly well-suited, and left after one year. I spent a summer teaching myself the basics of writing for radio and television with help and advice from friends already working in the industry.

My first job in radio was as a continuity writer at CFCW, the country music station in northern Alberta. From there I went on to work as a writer and producer in a number of stations in Alberta and Ontario before moving into regional advertising agencies.

Yes, this has taken quite a while. The books had been sent out by regular mail on June 23, so almost eight weeks ago. My experience has been that it can take as long as three months for a package to travel from Canada to India, so I hope the book will arrive soon. Yesterday, I received an e-mail from a winner in England who had only just received her copy.

Please give it another two weeks. If you've not received the book by then, please let me know and I'll mail you another copy. If you do receive the book, please let me know that as well.(less)

They come up to me as though they have known me for years and, perhaps because I don't just walk away but take the time to listen, they tell me stories.

The mystery is why these people are attracted to approach me.

So, as my character is walking down the street, a stranger in rags approaches him and tells a strange tale of murder and deception...

Spirit Duplicators

While ever-changing and always current with the times, the literary magazines more often called little magazines or litmags among my generation of writers and activists, have enjoyed a long and important history. On September 1st, I wrote about the sense of community found in these nontraditional presses by writers who were political or were in other ways outliers or outsiders during the mid-20th

Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused
“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
