Meet Trevor Corkum: Guest Editor for Issue 4!

Trevor Corkum

Trevor Corkum is a Canadian writer of fiction, essays, and creative non-fiction who has been published widely in Canada. He’s lived across Canada and in Norway, Spain and Germany and has travelled widely. Currently he is based in Toronto.

Trevor took his first writing workshops through Trent University and the Humber School of Writers, where he worked with mentor Michelle Berry. In 2012, he received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia. At UBC, he worked closely with Zsuzsi Gartner to complete his short fiction manuscript Beautiful Birds Are Flying All Around You. He also studied with Lisa Moore, Wayne Grady, and screenwriter Sara Graefe.

Recent publication credits include Little Fiction, The Malahat Review, Grain, and Journey Prize Stories 24, and Plenitude Magazine.

I was thrilled to include Trevor’s short story, 5’9, 135, 6 c, br, bl, in Plenitude‘s first issue. The story has since been anthologized in  Friend. Follow. Text. (Enfield and Wizenty, 2013). For more on Trevor Corkum, visit his literary blog, Currently Living.
