Paul Vermeersch

Paul Vermeersch was born in 1973 in Mississauga, Canada. He lives as a poet in Toronto.

In 1998, he founded the I.V. Lounge Reading Series and later published an anthology, The I.V. Lounge Reader (2001).

His poems often tackle themes concerning forces that isolate man from his environment and from his fellow man. Childhood memories and scenes from family life provide him with a canvas for much of his work.

Vermeersch is currently teaching creative writing at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, and he is the Poetry Editor for Insomniac Press in Toronto.

His published works include What You Wish Wasn't True (1999), Burn (2000), The Fat Kid (2002) and Between the Walls (2005).
