Leif Gregersen

Leif Gregersen grew up in St.Albert and left at the age of 18 to pursue a dream of attending flying school and traveling. On his return he wrote his life story and began writing poetry. He has lived in Edmonton for 23 years and has written three books of poetry, two memoirs and three short story collections. He feels a strong connection to the North and, aside from the odd trip to Hawaii never wants to leave Edmonton again. In 2014 Leif was voted as one of the top 11 ‘Writers to Watch’ on the CBC Canada Writes Website.
