Conrad van Dyk

I am a professor of English at Concordia University of Edmonton. In 2020, I was awarded my university’s top recognition for outstanding teaching (the Judith C. Meier Teaching Award). Mentoring students is my passion, which is why I originally created The Nature of Writing as a more engaging and affordable writing guide. I continue to do more traditional research too, having published especially on medieval law and literature. I am currently working with a colleague on a book about G. K. Chesterton. As for hobbies, I like to do some creative writing (check out my children’s podcast “Sophie and Sebastian”), play boardgames (not the Monopoly type), run longer distances, and spend time with my wife and kids.
