About Douglas Wilton

Doug Wilton was born in Toronto, grew up in small Ontario towns and ran away with the circus during the seventies, ending up in the Kootenays after a long exile in Toronto and Vancouver with side trips to Korea, Ireland and Spain. He has always believed that poetry should reflect fundamental truths about being human and spent his life in pursuit of same. He is the author of To Break The Wheel of War (New Orphic Publishers) and is currently fashioning what he has learned into useful implements for those who also see poetry as a tradition of awakened perception. He currently lives in Nelson where he edits The Elephant Mountain Review. www.elephantmountain.org
