About the Editor:

Nowick Gray has an MA degree in English (Canadian Literature) from the University of Victoria (1976) and a BA degree from Dartmouth College (1972). He also attended Simon Fraser University where he received a Teaching Certificate in 1979. From 1980 to 2002 he lived on a land co-operative in the small mountain community of Argenta, British Columbia, Canada. He now lives in Victoria, BC and winters in tropical locations.

Nowick's experience as a teacher, editor and published writer spans over thirty years. His essays, fiction and poetry have appeared in periodicals and anthologies as diverse as The San Francisco Chronicle, Friends Journal, NeWest Review, and Skills for Simple Living. He has self-published a group study guide, Active Nonviolence, and three books of collected rhythms for hand drum and percussion, Roots Jam. He has written and edited the eclectic Cougar WebWorks online magazine of alternatives since 1996, while also contributing to a number of other online publications.

In September of 2013 Nowick published his first book of fiction, Rendezvous at Jumbo Pass, a magic realist wilderness adventure. He also launched an author website and Facebook page.

As an editor Nowick has worked on the Canadian Quaker pamphlet series, and in curriculum development for the Northern Quebec School Board. He has taught creative writing at the grade 12 level, and has presented creative arts and theatre arts workshops to students and teachers from elementary to college level. An active member of a local writers' group for two decades, he has helped to produce a published anthology and to bring the work of several co-members to publication--most notably a series of radio documentaries for CBC, the Canadian national broadcasting network. Since 2000 Nowick has established a successful online business providing copyediting and proofreading services to a wide variety of clients.
