Duncan’s grandfather’s family came to Canada from Sweden in the late 1800â€™s – changing the family name from Sjogren to Armstrong. He is deeply grateful for that name change – school was tough enough with having to explain Sjogren every day.
From 1991 to 1999 Duncan was the force behind Bushwack Theatre. When it folded in 2000 he wrote a huge novel.
2002 – jumped back into the poetry/spoken scene – heâ€™s had work published in CV2, Labor of Love, Renaissance Conspiracy anthologies, been featured on HOWL, and hit stages all over the city from Cafe May (is it still there?) in the West end & the Renaissance Cafe in the east end
2005 performed at Pride for the first time – featured in shows at The Black Swan, Cryptic Chatter at Renaissance Cafe, George Harvey High School; hit open stages at Word Jam, Dimentia 5, Diamond Cherry, Poetic Justice, Plasticine Words; hosted the Coffeehouse Cabaret scariest nights: Halloween & Valentineâ€™s; workshopped fiction with Rosemary Aubert, & Caro Soles; did the U. of T. Poetry Master Class with David Donnell; was one of the judges for the Ellis Mystery Novel of the year
