Ken Victor

Ken Victor moved to Canada full-time from the States in 1990 after spending many summers guiding canoe trips in Northwestern Ontario. A graduate of the writing program at Syracuse University, over the years he has published his poetry in journals on both sides of the border, including The Malahat Review, Vallum, The Fiddlehead, The Antigonish Review, Grain, Queen’s Quarterly, Texas Review, and Beloit Poetry Journal. He received the National Magazine Award for Poetry, and was nominated for the Diane Brebner Prize in 2015. We Were Like Everyone Else is his first book. Now a Canadian by choice, Victor makes his home with his wife and three children in the Gatineau Hills of West Quebec, where he designs learning for organizations.
