Mac wrote for newspapers in Ontario before moving to BC. He began teaching with NIC in 1995 in the Nuu-chah-nulth community of Ahousaht, and since then has been an educator in Aboriginal education, upgrading and first-year English, teaching English 122, 115 and 160. You’ll see his articles in the local CV Collective magazine, and he is finally finding the time to work on a novel. His favourite fiction writers right now are Eden Robinson, Thomas King and Andre Alexis. His favourite poets, maybe forever, are Shane Koyczan ( https://www.youtube.com/user/ShaneKoyczan ) and Pablo Neruda. Currently, he’s reading the poetry of Jericho Brown: https://www.jerichobrown.com/
