Vancouver’s Daniel Wood is one of Canada’s best-known magazine writers and is the winner of 34 regional, national, or international writing awards. He’s also the author of 14 books. His work as an international journalist has taken him all over the globe. Often, Daniel's stories deal with conflicts around social justice, environmental abuse, urban politics, and the outsider’s role in a doctrinaire world. He has taught writing at Simon Fraser University for 25 years, and is one of the founders both the Western Magazine Awards and the Federation of B.C. Writers. In recognition of his work, the Western Magazine Awards gave him its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2000, the only freelance writer that has been presented with that honour.
