Don Austin


Don Austin lives in St. John’s, where he writes, makes arts, and increasingly, explores the possibilities of hypertext. His Ned After Snowslides was the first ‘born-digitial book’ to be hosted in the Special Collections department of Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Libraries. In 2005, he was Newfoundland’s regional winner for the CBC Poetry Face-off with Notes (toward a poem about play), which appeared in a suitably playful format from Running the Goat. The book was designed and illustrated by Tara Bryan.
