Luke Hathaway is a trans poet, librettist, and theatre maker. His mythopoeic word-worlds have given rise to new choral works by Colin Labadie, James Rolfe, and Zachary Wadsworth, among others, and to the folk opera The Sign of Jonas, a collaboration with Benton Roark.
He is the author of four books of poems, one of which (Years, Months, and Days, 2018) was named a Best Book of the Year in the New York Times.
He works with Daniel Cabena as part of the metamorphosing ensemble ANIMA to create and commission new works inspired by early music sources.
He teaches creative writing and English literature at Saint Mary's University in Kjipuktuk/Halifax.
