His 2009 novella The World More Full of Weeping was shortlisted for the Prix Aurora, and his "odd memoir" Walk Like a Man: Coming of Age with the Music of Bruce Springsteen was published in 2011. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia, and he's spending this fall promoting his new novel Black Feathers (Harper Collins Canada).
R Wiersema loves what he does and it shows. The depth and diversity of his knowledge and expertise in eye opening. I feel honoured to learn from him.
As a complete novice, I felt welcomed and able to ask any questions and treated with the same respect as the students who obviously are accomplished writers. Thank you!!

Robert imparted the info in a most impassioned and enthusiastic way. He held nothing back and inspired me. I was very aware of the quality of instruction. –DG
