It was English and History at Mount Alison University in Sackville, New Brunswick on the edge of the Tantramar Marsh.
I completed my adventures in higher education in the Theatre Department at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto, right on the edge, in those days.
My poetry has been published in various venues including First Encounter, CBC Anthology, Portico, Quarry, Poetry Toronto. A short story entitled ‘The Weekend Out With All Our Coins’ was recently published by The Antigonish Review. Front and Centre will publish my story, "The Libarians" fall 2011.
Plays include ‘In God’s Own Country’ produced by the Ryerson Studio Theatre, ‘Night and Fog’ (co-authored with Bill Penner) produced in cooperation with the Belfry Theatre in Victoria and Flight of the Snails for the Ottawa Little Theatre.

Dispatches From The Belleisle And Other Stories
by Jim Read
Previously published and now collected in one volume the characters in the twelve narratives that comprise Dispatches From The Belleisle And Other Stories are completely believable, compelling and entertaining.
From picturesque Belleisle Bay to the frozen expanse of the Canadian north Dispatches rewards the reader with lively action and a genuinely robust serving of comedy and drama.
