Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson

Books Editor, Letters Editor, Wine Columnist - Arts and Life

Ben MacPhee-Sigurdson edits the Free Press books section as well as the letters to the editor. He’s also the paper's weekly wine columnist.

A lifelong Winnipegger, he holds an English/Politics B.A. from the University of Winnipeg as well as a M.A. in English (writing stream) from the University of Manitoba.

After years working in the corporate, non-profit and small-business sectors in writing and communications, Ben started working in the newsroom in 2012 as a part-time copy editor. Later that year he was hired as a full-time web copy/web editor, working the graveyard shifts.

When esteemed books/letters editor Morley Walker retired in January 2014, Ben rekindled his love for all things literary and started a new chapter at the Free Press.

Ben paid for his English degrees (and various pieces of smashed-up drum kits) by working at wine stores. When the wine columnist gig came open in 2005, he jumped at the chance, and has been able to travel extensively as well as judge in wine competitions in this role.

He lives in sunny St. James with his wife, two kids and two old, creaky cats.
