About Kenny Hedges

Suffering from a love of film and writing, Kenny Hedges used to spend his days pounding out reviews of older films nobody saw with the occasional recent press screening peppered in between. He’s been published in Cult Montreal and smaller local papers and websites around town. Trained in journalism at Concordia and a high school in Tucson, Arizona that used to let him ditch classes to edit the school paper, he is also cursed with a wikipidic-knowledge of cinema, complete with some unverified information. Sometimes, if he’s really good, his fiction gets published. He enjoys house parties, cooking, and old detective novels.
