STEVEN MICHAEL BERZENSKY [aka MICK BURRS]

Mick moved to Canada in November, 1965. Both he and his friend Kent Bowman intuitively knew what a disaster the Vietnam War would be. They understood there is always something better to live for. Peace is no cliché. Mick started writing poetry at Simon Fraser University where he was a teaching assistant. 29 chapbooks, seven books, and many edited books later, he stands here proud of co-editing with Allan Briesmaster the poetry anthology CROSSING LINES (2008). His most recent writing successes include this summer’s productions of two short Patio Plays: ASTHMA, and A QUASI-SCIENTIFIC TREATISE ON COPULATION AMONGST FRUIT FLIES.
