Dennis E Bolen has led the literary life since his late teens, experimenting with poetry in high school before taking two university degrees in creative writing. He published seven books of fiction with three different publishers over a career that saw him work as editor for sub-TERRAIN magazine, part-time editorial writer for the Vancouver Sun, and freelance literature critic for several publications.
Over the years Mr. Bolen has sat on the executive of the Canadian Authors Association and assisted with the annual Summer Dreams literary festival. His return to poetry, the largely autobiographical collection Black Liquor, was published by Caitlin Press in September 2013. Two novellas were published in the international JG Ballard journal, Deep Ends 2021-22.
