Jake de Peuter has lived in Southern Alberta all his life, the source of his writing being experiences he's had in that region.
He is currently working (along with the help of a few friends, he says) toward the publication of a chap-book, the title of which will be The Carthartic Converter Maintainance Manual. It will be his first published collection.
Jake de Peuter has appeared in such periodicals as Grain and Whetstone. Known locally as a performance poet, he's been profiled performing poetry from the Carthartic Converter collection on the C.I.S.A. news program, "Impact" (Ch. 2&7 T.V., Lethbridge). He has also been featured in Lethbridge Living Magazine.
