Russell Thornton’s Bio

RUSSELL THORNTON immediately sprang to mind as a mentor when Rader was asked who had shaped his work. Thornton has won the League of Canadian Poets’ National Contest and The Fiddlehead’s Ralph Gustafson Prize for Poetry, and his poems have appeared in several anthologies, including Open Wide A Wilderness: Canadian Nature Poems, A Verse Map of Vancouver, and Rocksalt: An Anthology of Contemporary BC Poetry. His recent books are House Built of Rain (Harbour, 2003), which was shortlisted for the ReLit Poetry Award and the Dorothy Livesay BC Book Prize, and The Human Shore (Harbour, 2006).
