Phil Dwyer’s asthmatic childhood contributed to a deep love of reading, an encyclopaedic knowledge of sixties British pop, and a healthy distrust for the curvature of normal lives. He was a journalist for 20 years in the UK. He moved to Canada in 2002 to work on a research project with Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams that spawned Tapscott’s The Naked Corporation. Dwyer is an alumni of the Humber School for Writers and has also studied writing at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies. He has workshopped his writing with Alissa York and Charlotte Gill. His creative writing and journalism have been published in a number of publications, including The Financial Times and the Times of London, and Canada’s Globe and Mail. Dundurn has bought world rights to his current project, Conversations On Dying, which will be published in April 2016. His website is www.phildwyer.ca.
