John Nyman, B.A. Creative Writing and English, 2012

"I think most of all the Creative Writing program offered a small community in a big university. While the students in my English and humanities classes were many and varied (I maintained connections with very few of them after graduating), the CW students at my year level were a small group of unique students I had a lot in common with, and who I had a chance to get to know well (not just personally but artistically and professionally) by graduation."

John now also holds a Masters degree in Cultural Studies and Critical Theory at McMaster, and is currently working on a PhD in Theory and Criticism at Western. In 2016 he published his first book of poems, Players.
