William began a career in publishing with an underground one-sheet newspaper, while studying for his BA in Political Studies. After a short career in Ottawa, he moved back to Vancouver to focus on writing poetry. Self-publishing zines became a creative outlet for poetry and illustrations, as well as the work of collaborators. Collaboration is at the heart of William’s work, and he recently completed his second successful crowdfunding campaign — this time with an international team of creators. The 32-page zine is full of original stories and art. William curated, designed, edited, fundraised, promoted, and published the project. With the array of new skills from Langara’s Publishing diploma, including web design, typography, and print-production, William is eager to start working in the publishing and printing industry.
