Alfred DePew’s day job consists of training executive leaders and their organizations in change management, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, diversity, non-toxic communication, and implementing vision. He is on the faculty of Center for Right Relationship, for whom he delivers advanced training in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching.

Before moving to Vancouver in 2007, DePew taught at the Maine College of Art, the Salt Center for Documentary Studies, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. His first book of stories, The Melancholy of Departure, won a Flannery O’Connor Award. His second book, Wild & Woolly: A Journal Keeper’s Handbook is available to Canadian readers through his website and at a few local independent bookstores. His third book, another collection of short fiction, is in search of a publisher—got any ideas?
