Francis Fernandes grew up and studied Mathematics in Montréal. A work term in Ottawa (at Statistics Canada) was his first experience away from home, and in that time he discovered that words and poetry count too. Currently, he lives in Germany where he teaches English and writes. His pieces have appeared in Poetry Potion, What Rough Beast, (Ex)cite, Montréal Writes, Third Wednesday (forthcoming).
