He began publishing his work in the agricultural newspaper, The Western Producer, under the pseudonym Mr. Whippoorwill. Since then his work has appeared in dozens of anthologies and he has published eight books, including How I Joined Humanity at Last (1999), which won the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize. Former editor of the literary journal, Event, he taught at Douglas College in New Westminster, B.C. for 25 years before retiring and founding the Alfred Gustav Press. David Zieroth was born in Neepawa, Manitoba and now lives in North Vancouver, B.C.
Jury's commentIn The Fly in Autumn, David Zieroth addresses our common and defining human fate – the loneliness that is a rehearsal for death – with a tenderness and buoyancy that shows the reader “how to walk in the dark with flowers.” The intricacy and exuberance of rhyme and the breadth of vision are stunning.
