Steven HeightonThis winter’s UPEI Writer-in-Residence will be Steven Heighton, award-winning novelist, poet, short-story writer, and essayist. He will give a public reading on February 6 at 7:30 pm in the UPEI Main Building, Faculty Lounge, Charlottetown.

Raised in Toronto and northern Ontario, Heighton travelled and worked in western Canada, Australia, and Asia, studied at Queen’s University, and settled in Kingston, Ontario, where he writes full-time. His distinctions include several National Magazine Award gold medals for fiction and poetry, and the 2016 Governor General’s Award for Poetry for The Waking Comes Late.

Heighton’s novels take us from castaway Arctic explorers in the 1870s, to a Greek-Canadian soldier traumatized in Afghanistan and shipped to Cyprus for stress leave and therapy, to high adventure in Nepal and China with Tibetan refugees, Chinese soldiers, a Canadian humanitarian doctor, an egotistical mountaineer, and an Asian-Canadian film-maker.

Steven Heighton’s visit and the UPEI Writer-in-Residency are sponsored by the Dean of Arts, the Vice-President Academic/Research, and the English Department, with generous support from The Canada Council for the Arts.
