About the Author

Étienne Beaulieu


A writer, professor and publisher, Étienne Beaulieu runs Éditions Nota bene and teaches literature at the Cégep de Drummondville. His preferred literary genres are the literary essay, which he finds much more personal in tone than the academic study, and the prose narrative, which he considers very different from the novel given his prose philosophy. In 2014, he published a novella, Trop de lumière pour Samuel Gaska (Too Much Light for Samuel Gaska), which garnered the City of Montreal's Prix Jacques-Cartier, the Grand Prix du livre de la Ville de Sherbrooke, the Prix Alfred-Desrochers and was a finalist for the Prix Chambéry (France). His historical narrative, Thomas Aubert : La Pensée et la mer, will be appearing in 2017.
