Hi! My name is Ben Berman Ghan, I am a creator based in Tkaronto/Toronto, site of Treaty 13 and Williams Treaty territory, where I’ve completed an HBA from the University of Toronto, an MA in English from The Toronto Metropolitan University. I have taught as a sessional instructor in Sheridan College’s Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing and Publishing program, and am an incoming PhD student in English Literature at The University of Calgary with a creative dissertation, set to begin my studies in fall 2022!

My non-fiction has been published in such venues as Strange Horizons and Empty Mirror Books, my prose in The Temz Review and The Sweet Tree Review, and my poetry has appeared in Abyss and Apex and The Cypress Poetry Journal. I am the author of the short story collection What We See in the Smoke (Crowsnest Books 2019) and the novella Visitation Seeds (845 Press 2020). I am currently the prose editor of Terse Journal, and a fiction reader for Alien Magazine.

My bookings for freelance editing work are currently closed. When open, I am available as an editor for works of short fiction and creative non-fiction. Please check out my Editing Services page for more information, and stay tuned for when my bookings reopen!
