Collins, Gerard

Gerard Collins is an award-winning Newfoundland author now living in southern New Brunswick. His novel Finton Moon was nominated for the Dublin IMPAC prize and the Sunburst Award, among others, and won the Percy Janes First Novel Award, while his debut short story collection, Moonlight Sketches, won the 2012 NL Book Award. After a much-needed fallow time, he’s now working on two new novels, a memoir, and a short story collection, which leaves just enough time for mentorships and hosting a writing retreat in St. Andrews this fall and Italy next spring, while teaching by distance at Memorial University.
