Bio
John Loeppky is a theatre artist, newspaper editor, freelance journalist, and creator of things. He is currently studying for his Interdisciplinary MFA at the University of Regina. He is the former editor of the U of R's campus newspaper, the Carillon, where he was in charge of a staff of 20. John's goal in life is to have an entertaining obituary to read. Most of what he writes involves disability, creativity, sport, accessibility, and the political right for disabled people to live and work in their bodies.
