Stephen Brockwell is an Ottawa poet and end-times entrepreneur. His Fruitfly Geographic won the 2005 Archibald Lampman Award. With Stuart Ross, he co-edited the protest anthology Rogue Stimulus: a Stephen Harper Holiday Anthology for a Prorogued Parliament. His sixth book, All of Us Reticent, Here, Together, was published by Mansfield Press in 2016. Poems have recently appeared in The Puritan, Prism International, the Arc Poetry Magazine "Art in the End Times" issue, and Inwords. When not making notes in the oxygen-deprived atmosphere of a regional jet, he is trying to survive the cloud economy by keeping his head up there.
