Derrick Stacey Denholm, after graduating from art school, spent most of the past twenty-five years living and working in the remote forestlands of northern and coastal British Columbia. Having recently come out of the trees to complete a BA and an MA in English, his literary work concerns respect for the wild, social and environmental justice and the ongoing industrialization of Indigenous lands. Denholm won the 2011 Barry McKinnon Chapbook Award for Dead Salmon Dialectics, which was published in full form by Caitlin Press in 2014. Denholm's writing and visual art has been published in Canadian Literature, the Capilano Review, CV2, Dreamland, Drunken Boat, filling Station, The Goose and ::stonestone::. He feels the most at home when standing on a mossy log in the rain and listening to raven gossip, his fingertips stained with the juice of wild berries.
