Greg Gatenby

Greg Gatenby was born in 1950. He is the author of several collections of poetry and published two anthologies on dolphins and whales in art and literature, and the »Literary Guide to Toronto«. Thanks to his work as the founding Artistic Director of the Harbourfront Reading Series festival and IFOA (International Festival of Authors), Toronto has become a capital of literature. Since the 1970s, Gatenby has defended persecuted writers and fought for their right to publish. He has also hosted literary programmes on radio and TV.
