• Biography

    Gregory M. Cook was born in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. As one of three poets in his immediate family, he has made writers and their survival a personal and a professional study. His biography of his close friend of twenty years, One Heart, One Way/ Alden Nowlan: A Writer's Life, was undertaken following a two-year appointment as writer-in-residence at the University of Waterloo. More recently he has lived in Toronto, Fredericton, and Saint John, New Brunswick, where he is writing a biography of his friend, novelist Ernest Buckler (1908-1984).

    Cook has read from his works in schools and universities in all Canadian provinces, and the Yukon where he was in residence at Berton House Writers' Retreat - as well as in Maine and Georgia, USA; England; the Netherlands; and Germany. He is a member of Writers' Union of Canada, The League of Canadian Poets and the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick, and an honourary member of the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia.
