Mike Wells teaches in the Department of English at Humber. Before that, he taught courses in composition and literature at UofT, Trent, UBC, and Centennial College. His PhD is in 18th century and Romantic British fiction from UBC, with a particular focus on the early British novel and the lessons that it can teach us about mediation and genre formation. This is Mike’s first foray into the world of publishing (save for a brief career in textbook sales), and is thrilled to be involved in helping to promote great writing through HLR.
