2019 Writer in Residence:
March 1, 2019 – May 31, 2019
Bradley Somer holds degrees in Archaeology and Anthropology and spent many years tromping through the wilds of Canada and the US, the scrub brush of Australia, and along the beaches of the Caribbean looking for artifacts to fill in the hidden stories of human prehistory. He now just makes up stories because it’s easier. He is also the recipient of the 2016 Lieutenant Governor General’s award for Emerging Artist.
His writing has appeared in dozens of literary magazines and anthologies. His first novel, Imperfections, was published by Nightwood Editions in Canada. His latest novel, Fishbowl, has been published in more than fifteen countries and five translations around the world, was awarded the Georges Bugnet Award for fiction, and longlisted for the Alberta Readers Choice Awards.
