Allan Cooper was born 15 March 1954 in Moncton, New Brunswick. He attended Mount Allison University in Sackville, where he was active in music and poetry circles. In 1982 he took over editing the poetry magazine Germination from Harry Thurston, and between 1982-1990 he published work by Canadian poets such as Jan Conn, Douglas Burnet Smith and Leigh Faulkner. In 1983, Cooper was elected president of the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick, and in 1986 he founded Owl's Head Press. Cooper has published over a dozen poetry collections, twice won the Alfred G. Bailey Award, and received the Peter Gzowski Award in 1994.
