Matthew Tierney

Tierney’s poetry has been published in many literary journals in Canada including the Malahat Review, the Fiddlehead, Event, the Antigonish Review, Prism International, the New Quarterly and Qwerty, as well as in the Brobdingnagian Times and Southword, in Cork, Ireland. He was born in a small town outside of Waterloo and grew up in Toronto, where he now lives. Several years ago, he spent some time in Japan teaching conversational English, and returned home by way of the Trans-Mongolian Express, an offshoot of the Trans-Siberian Express, one of the last great transcontinental train routes. He continues to take the subway to work every day.
