Andrew Buckley


In-Person Conference

Andrew Buckley is a film school-educated writer, which means he’s spent most of his life with no money and a strong opinion about bad movies. Today, he’s a traditionally and self-published novelist of rather silly, yet enjoyable speculative fiction for all ages, a comic book writer, screenwriter, podcaster, creator, and speaker.

For over 20 years, he worked in the dreaded world of marketing as a content creator, copywriter, and strategist for large national and international brands. He actively develops curriculum and teaches marketing, social media, and communication theory at the post-secondary level.

As a writer, Andrew favors playing in the fantasy and paranormal sandboxes and has a terrible habit of writing with a humorous and satirical slant despite being asked politely on numerous occasions to ‘please stop doing that’.

Andrew speaks to thousands of students each year about storytelling and writing through the delivery of interactive and engaging workshops and presentations at schools, colleges, writing conferences, teacher conferences, and comic cons at an international level.

At the time you’re reading this, he’s likely busy working on several new projects and attempting to bend time and space to allow for more hours in the day. He now lives happily in the Okanagan Valley, BC with a multitude of characters that dwell comfortably inside of his mind.
