Bio/Research

Bill Gaston came to the Writing Department in 1998 following a dozen years in the Maritimes, mostly at UNB, in Fredericton. There he was Director of the Creative Writing Program, and, for a time, editor of Canada's oldest literary journal, The Fiddlehead. He's also lived in Toronto, Winnipeg, and France, and spent his formative years on the slopes of North Van. He worked at the usual struggling-writer jobs, typically in universities but also in group homes, but the most exotic of these were fishing guide, swamping for a cat at a logging show, and playing hockey in the south of France. He now leads a more settled existence in Gordon Head, where he resides with writer Dede Crane and their four children.
