Keith Garebian’s writing has been published in over eighty newspapers, magazines, journals, and anthologies. He is the author of three works of literary criticism, nine books on theatre, and has produced production histories for five classic Broadway musicals. He has written three collections of poetry, including Blue: The Derek Jarman Poems and Frida: Paint Me As A Volcano. The latter collection had simultaneous French translation by Governor-General Nominee Arlette Franciere, and was nominated for the ReLit Award for Poetry.
Among his many honours are the 2000 Mississauga Arts Award for Writing, the Lakeshore Arts & Scarborough Arts Council Poetry Award (2003), a Dan Sullivan Memorial Poetry Award (2006), and awards for haiku and free verse from The Ontario Poetry Society. He was the first-ever critic-at-large at a public library — at the Mississauga Public Library from 2000 to 2003.
