Dennis Poirier is a writer living in Shediac, NB. An avid reader, he’s huge fan of the grandfather of science fiction, Jules Verne and also loves researching classical world mythologies. He’s been a member of the New Brunswick Filmmaker’s Cooperative for over a decade and has worked on numerous volunteer short films and also worked in a professional capacity on a half dozen feature films shot in NB. He’s been an actor, a lighting grip, an assistant director, and was the recipient of a Short Film Venture Grant to produce his project: “Dead Flies”. Scriptwriting and helping members to get their stories written is his favorite part of the process. He submitted to Notable Acts: “The Peanut Butter Formula” and the play was part of their annual event. He wrote for Here Magazine for two years with his signature column: “In the Bin” where he reviewed DVD treasures in discount retail displays. His only published work so far is: “The Story of Adam Poirier” in The Black Top Motorcycle Gang’s anthology: “Myth.” Dennis likes to write fiction, scripts for film and television, plays, historical dramatization stories and science fiction. He is currently working on a book: “Facecards: The Secret History Revealed” about the real and mythological people the court cards represent before standardization forced card makers to remove their names on the kings, queens and jacks. Sometimes affectionately called Big D by close friends; and asserts he was nicknamed that long before the city of Dallas, Texas. Dennis is living proof a dairy farmer’s son can dream big and exercise his talents without leaving Eastern Canada, where his ancestry goes back to the first European settlers who came to North America.
