John Weier

John Weier, writer and violin restorer, was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and grew up on a peach farm near Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. Since 1975, he has been Winnipeg's resident luthier: maker of banjos, violas and violins. Weier lives and writes in Winnipeg where he also works as a luthier.

John Weier believes nothing is simple, especially his writing: his memoirs are novels, and his novels documentary. His poetry is prose and follows diary lines, his prose is poetic. He is the author of five previous collections of poetry, three works of fiction, two nature memoirs and a children’s book. John often writes about his passions, including travel, birding and the violin.
