Brandon Pitts is the author of “In the Company of Crows” (Mosaic Press, 2017). A prominent figure in the Ontario and US Pacific Northwest poetry scenes, Brandon has been packing houses with his dynamic readings in multiple cities and countries.  

His work has been widely anthologized. In 2011 he was inducted into the prestigious Diaspora Dialogues as an "Emerging Voice" for fiction. He followed this with his novel, “Puzzle of Murders” (2011) and then a poetry collection, “Pressure to Sing” (2012) and the production of three plays.

His second collection, “Tender in the Age of Fury,” was published by Mosaic Press to wide critical praise and is already in its third printing.
