Nico Rogers writes poetry and fiction. He published his first book, The Fetch, in 2010. His latest poems come from being at home with his son and from being a stepfather to a 10-year-old girl. They reach into his personal and family history, while also attempting to flesh out some of the complexities of contemporary, urban maleness. They are also about the daily routine of cleaning milk and tomato sauce off the walls. Largely, they’ve helped him along on a journey that started with being the homebody to a 2.5 month-old. Another of his writing projects is a manuscript based on the diary he kept while on a 50-day canoeing expedition across the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. He lives in Toronto.
