- Brent Loehr, from Muenster, is an English teacher at Humboldt Collegiate Institute and has a Diploma in Writing. He played college baseball in the U.S. (North Dakota) where he earned an education degree focusing on English, Physical Education, and Coaching.
He 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. After his daughter Sarah was born he went on hiatus and focused on another interest in his life that would keep him closer to home: writing.
Loehr earned a Diploma in Writing at St. Peter's College to compliment his double major. He was later awarded a placement in the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild mentorship program and the opportunity to work with professional editor Ted Dyck.
Various stories from his anthology on his experiences with baseball 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.
