Riverwriter

At a summer island party.
Riverwriter is the blogging pseudonym of Doug Hill, the jovial barbershopper in the photo, but otherwise, a poet, playwright, editor, commentator, and critic who was once a teacher of writing and drama to high school students, many of whom had to audition for the privilege. An associate member of the Playwrights’ Guild of Canada, a member of the National Arts Centre’s Writers’ Unit, and for more than most bloggers’ lifetime, an agitator in community and educational theatre. Husband of Flora (retired and much-admired English teacher, superb stage director, curler, artist, and loving friend . . .), father of Stephanie (artist, knitting teacher, florist, student violinist, wife of Simon and mother of De Danann), George (intense chef, astounding poet, musician and martial artist, partner to the wonderful and pragmatic Ku), and Peter (farmer, piper, music teacher, multi-intrument musician composer/performer, chef and father of Colin and Martin Aero, friend and partner to the multi-talented Tammy.) Tra la!
