Keith Johnson

  • MA, (English: Creative Writing), Concordia University
  • BA Honours English, University of Winnipeg

Very much a prairie boy, I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Winnipeg (incorporating a few courses taken at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon), then moved to Montreal to do my MA in 1977, remaining in Montreal (surprisingly) for 18 years, teaching a variety of subjects: creative writing, academic writing, ESL, and business writing and speaking. Moved to Vancouver in 1995 to launch the Business Communication course at SFU, then gradually transitioned to UFV Communications Department. Happy ever after!
