Bill Howell, one of the original Storm Warning poets, has had a literary career spanning five decades. He has five collections, and his work appears regularly in literary journals and anthologies across Canada, in the UK, Australia, and the United States. Born in Liverpool, England, he grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and has lived in Toronto for more than half his life. Bill was a network producer-director at CBC Radio Drama for three decades. Ranging from the lyrical to the ironic, his poetry deploys colloquial language, deliberate narrative, and a sharp sense of the focused moment.
