Michael Todd (MA 1979) is the editor of York University Magazine. He lives north of the Big Smoke in King Township where, rumour has it, there are more horses than people. He counts as his influences Robert Creeley, Ezra Pound, Gary Snyder, William Carlos Williams and other greats such as Seamus Heaney, who always seems to find just the right word and doesn’t waste it.
