- Drawing on Water
Wade Kearley was born in 1956 and grew up on the banks of Manuels River in Conception Bay. After a succession of training programs and odd jobs, he discovered his interest in writing.
Since receiving his Fine Arts degree in poetry from the University of Victoria in 1985, he has worked full time as a journalist, copywriter, columnist and critic. However, it was poetry which gave Wade the conviction to become a writer and it is poetry which remains his passion.
Mr. Kearley presently lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland with his wife, Katherine Gill, and their daughters Julianne and Sasha.
