Areas of Research & Creative Activity

Poetry, short fiction.


Levi Binnema was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta and recently finished his Bachelor of Arts in English and Creative Writing at the University of Alberta. He has been published three times in the Glass Buffalo literary magazine, twice for poetry and once for short fiction. He was also longlisted for the CBC Canada Writes short Fiction prize in 2013.

He finds interest in writing about historical traumatic events, especially how these events linger and resonate through generations in society. During a recent class studying under Derek Walcott, he has found inspiration in longer poetical forms that have the capacity to value aspects of both verse and prose. Levi looks forward to further exploring these themes while living and studying in Victoria.
