Meet H. E.

H. E. Casson (they/them) is a writer, a Torontonian, and an all-around okay human. They are old enough to remember two distinct eras in which everyone un-ironically wore plaid. 

Their writing has been shared by Cast of Wonders, Taco Bell Quarterly, the League of Canadian Poets, Serotonin, and Ghost Heart Literary Journal—among others.

Their works are often speculative and explore gender, sexuality, food, poverty, homelessness, survival, family, and the playfulness available in language.

Their voice acting appears in the Moonbase Theta Out, Disenchanted, and Seminar podcasts.

They have faith in kindness, coffee, and nobility of the pigeon—in that order.
