|Jan Zwicky poet, essayist, philosopher, musician was born in Northern Alberta. She currently teaches philosophy at the University of Victoria in British Columbia, and has taught both philosophy and creative writing at numerous universities and writing centres. She earned her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto. As a violinist, she has played with many Canadian orchestras. Her passions for music and philosophy are often the focus of her poetic work, and her theoretical essays call attention to these overlaps. Zwicky also works as an editor for Ontario poetry publishers Brick Books.|
