Trent Wilkie is a writer/journalist/performer in Edmonton Alberta, Canada.
The current editor of the Camrose Canadian, Trent has written for CBC Radio (The Irrelevant Show), See Magazine, Vue Magazine, The Fort Saskatchewan Record, NinjaVideo.net, Toronto Life and Fitness, The Sherwood Park News, Canadian Emergency News, FFWD Magazine, The Tomato, AdBusters, Trucker Magazine, The Mighty Rhine, The Mayerthorpe Freelancer and Horrornews.net.
Trent is also a member of Mostly Water Theatre, a sketch comedy troupe that has been dubbed as “a perfect mix of boneheadedness and sophistication”, and currently co-hosts Metro Shorts at the Garneau Theatre in Edmonton, Alberta.
He has also performed in several Edmonton International Fringe Festivals and someone did say (without bribery), “Trent Wilkie is one of the funniest men in Edmonton, a member of Mostly Water Theatre and one of the city’s great ears for dialogue.” There may have been alcohol involved. This past summer, he and Christian Zyp received 5 out of 5 stars from the Edmonton Journal for their rendition of Hamlet: As Told on the Street by Shel Silverstein. Again, there was alcohol involved, but also intellect.
On top of that Trent has also been a wilderness canoe guide for close to ten years. Having paddled all over Canada, he considers the deep dark woods a therapy that only comes at the cost of comfort.
When not being overwhelmingly eclectic, Trent likes to relax while watching horror movies and trying to write the perfect three chord song.
