I was born in New Waterford, Nova Scotia, Canada, and now reside in nearby Glace Bay. In 2001, I graduated from Acadia University with a B.A. major in Literature/History. While there, I served as News Editor of the school’s newspaper, as well as Editor-In-Chief of its arts journal. I’ve contributed poetry to a number of online and print publications, all of which I hope to cover with time, and am currently a member of the poetry editing staff for Miracle arts magazine ( http://miracleezine.wix.com/miracle-e-zine ) . In November 2014, my first personal collection of poetry, A Waltz Around The Swirls, was published. For info on the book, including purchasing info and reader reviews and a forum, please visit my Amazon author page at amazon.com/author/stevenfortune .
