Remembering Steven Heighton

A picture of Steven Heighton


We received the news of Steven Heighton’s passing with great sadness and send our deepest condolences to his loved ones. We had the distinct pleasure of working with Steven on both his poetry at House of Anansi and his work for children at Groundwood Books. We are honoured that so many of us had the opportunity to know Steven and interact with his writing.

Steven was a prolific and prize-winning author, poet, and musician. He was also a kind friend and a true talent. He will be so missed.
