KEYNOTE ADDRESS: MICHAEL REDHILL, AWARD-WINNING WRITER AND EDITOR

EAC is excited to announce that this year’s keynote address will be given by Michael Redhill, award-winning poet, playwright, short-story writer and novelist. To ensure all conference attendees fully enjoy Michael’s presentation, the keynote address will be simultaneously interpreted into French.

Born in Maryland in 1966, Michael Redhill has lived in Canada for most of his life. His most recent novel, Consolation, was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2007 and won the City of Toronto Book Award. His other fiction includes the short-story collection Fidelity and the novel Martin Sloane. His play “Goodness” has been performed around the world since its premiere in Toronto in 2005 and won the Carol Tambor Award in Edinburgh in 2006. He has also published five poetry collections and taught writing at the University of Toronto.

An editor all his life, Michael’s career formally began in the early nineties at Coach House Press. He is currently the publisher and one of the editors of the Canadian literary magazine Brick, which is published twice a year. After living in France for a number of years, he now lives in Toronto with his partner and two sons.
