Joshua Levy grew up in Montreal, Canada. He lived in Ottawa, Edmonton, Toronto, both Londons, and Lisbon, before returning to Montreal.

Levy uses a multi-disciplinary approach; incorporating elements of poetry, fiction, memoir, history, and often audio, illustration, and photography, to explore the intersection between people, place, time, and memory.

His writing has appeared in the Malahat Review, Maisonneuve, the Puritan, the Rumpus, Event, Queen’s Quarterly, Prairie Fire, Antigonish Review, Taddle Creek, and Feathertale Review, among other places, and been anthologized in the Oxford University Press and Vehicule Press. A frequent guest on CBC, he tells stories at festivals and events across Canada, judges literary competitions in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and teaches writing workshops.

His honours include being a winner of the CBC/QWF Fiction Prize, Prairie Fire Nonfiction Prize, CNFC/Carte Blanche Nonfiction Prize, and SLS Nonfiction Prize, and being short-listed or long-listed for the Montreal International Poetry Prize (three times) CBC Nonfiction Prize, Vallum Poetry Chapbook Prize, Disquiet Nonfiction Prize, and Barry Lopez Nonfiction Prize.

Levy was the 2018 CBC Writer-in-Residence.
