Hi, I’m W. Mark Giles. I write, I edit, I teach.

Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 11.02.48 AMI’m very happy that my novel Seep has been shortlisted for the First Novel Award Co-Presented with The Walrus. The roster of those who have won or been nominated for the award over the last 40 years reads like a who’s who of writing in Canada — and I am gobsmacked to join that list along with the other fantastic nominees this year.

The announcement of the award is May 26, 2016, in Toronto . . .
