Cooper Lee Bombardier

Collaborative Editor

Cooper is a writer and visual artist and the author of Pass with Care: Memoirs, a finalist for the 2021 CLMP Firecracker Award in Nonfiction. His work has been published in eighteen anthologies and in various literary journals and periodicals. In addition to his work as an editor and author coach, Cooper teaches writing to university students at Dalhousie University, to grad students in the University of King’s College MFA in Creative Nonfiction program, and to young writers through community outlets such as Writers in the Schools. One of the best days of Cooper’s young life was when the town librarian gave him an adult library card after he’d read all the books in the children and youth sections. Still an avid reader, Cooper tries to exceed his annual goal of reading at least one book per week.

You did a superb job in improving the manuscript in several ways. You have the rare talent of being able to contribute on both a strategic and a tactical level.
