- Brent Loehr, from Muenster, is an English teacher at Humboldt Collegiate Institute. He also teaches Creative Writing online for Horizon School Division.
He played college baseball in the U.S. (North Dakota) where he earned an education degree focusing on English, Physical Education, and Coaching. He later finished a Diploma in Writing at St. Peter's College.
Brent has traveled the globe extensively with the sport of baseball--mainly on summer trips as an Envoy Coach for Major League Baseball International in Europe and Africa. He has also coached locally, provincially, and nationally from the Rally Cap program all the way up to Team Saskatchewan.
After starting a family with wife Melissa in 2009, Brent has stayed closer to home spending time with his daughters Sarah and Leia. He hopes to also spend more time in the future on another passion: writing.
Previously, Brent was awarded a placement in the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild mentorship program and had the good fortune of having the opportunity to work with professional editor Ted Dyck. A number of stories have been written by Brent on his experiences with the game of baseball and have appeared in magazines across the country including Prairies North, Swedish Press, The Society, Transition, Westworld, Going Places, and The Canadian Baseball Network.
Brent also enjoys reading and writing about rock music. A story he wrote about Todd Kerns (bass guitarist for Slash) appeared in Canadian Musician.
