Peter Midgley Leaves UAlberta Press for New Adventures

After more than ten highly-accomplished years with University of Alberta Press, Peter is making a renewed investment in our community of writers and in his own writing. He has just been named the Festival Director for STARFest, otherwise known as the St. Albert readers’ festival.

In 2018, @ReadersFest hosted Esi Edugyan, Patrick deWitt, Eden Robinson, and many other writers. We look forward to seeing what transpires for 2019.

Peter also plans to edit, as well as to present workshops on writing, editing, and creativity. In fact, his latest volume of poems, let us not think of them as barbarians, is being published by NeWest Press in September 2019.

We wish Peter all the best in his new endeavours.
