  • The Bus by Adam Pottle


Adam Pottle

is an award-winning author whose work explores the discomforting and liberating aspects of Deafness and disability.






I was born in Kamloops, British Columbia sometime in the late twentieth century, part of the generation of millennials who elbowed their way in and took over our cultural scene. I lived in Ashcroft, Kitimat, and Prince George before moving to Saskatoon, where I currently live.

I was educated at the University of Northern BC (BA, 2006; MA, 2008) and the University of Saskatchewan (PhD, 2016).

I was born part-deaf in both ears, and this sensory calibration has kept me in a state of perpetual childhood, preserving my imagination and helping me to become a writer.

The writers who’ve had the most influence on me include Mordecai Richler, John Steinbeck, Toni Morrison, Elie Wiesel, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Albert Camus, Hunter S. Thompson, Dennis E. Bolen, Brad Fraser, and Margaret Laurence.
