About Me

I’m an Ottawa-based poet, historian and author with a special interest in queer history, mental illness, trauma and the places that time forgot. I’m also a Classics major who graduated in 2019.

Here, you’ll find links to my poetry chapbooks, my bibliography of more traditionally-published works, and my ongoing webnovel, Ghosts in Quicksilver. GIQ is a pet project of mine, bringing some of my favourite characters to live in the city that I’ve called home for more than a decade. It’s also part of the larger, shared-world setting of Alkimia Fables Press – which will officially launch with the Chrysopoeia anthology.

If you’d like to contact me, you can email me at elliott.dunstan@gmail.com, or contact me on Twitter at @elliottdunstan. I’m also usually hanging around most of Ottawa’s larger writing events, so if you see me, come say hi!

Third-person bio:

“Elliott Dunstan is an Ottawa-based poet, historian and author, previously published in Bywords.ca and Renaissance Press, and currently running Alkimia Fables Press. Elliott is a mixed-race autistic trans man who tries to speak to all of these things in his novels and poetry, which can be found at elliottdunstan.com.”

In the occasion that I do not provide one or the one I have provided does not suit, this one is available.
