Trent Wilkie is a writer/journalist/performer in Edmonton Alberta, Canada.
Trent has written for everything from CBC Radio (The Irrelevant Show) to The Canadian Emergency News to Adbusters to the Edmonton Sun and Horrornews.net.
Trent is also a member of Mostly Water Theatre, a sketch comedy troupe and has also performed in several Edmonton International Fringe Festivals and had varying degrees of success.
Friends Without Benefits is another troupe Trent is a part of. They think they are funny. Others think so too.
As well, Trent has also been a wilderness canoe guide for over 10 years. Having paddled all over Canada, he considers the deep dark woods a therapy that only comes at the cost of comfort.
When taking time off from trying not to be boring, Trent likes to relax while watching horror movies and trying to write the perfect three chord song.
