His work has appeared or is forthcoming in Best Canadian Poetry 2018, The Malahat Review, Arc Poetry Magazine, The Puritan, PRISM: international, and filling Station, among other places. In 2015, Chaulk co-founded &, collective, an experimental poetry collective in Guelph, with whom he published two group chapbooks (&, 1: works by &, collective, self-published, and &, 2: this happened to one of us, Publication Studio Guelph). He has worked as a seaman in Labrador, Sweden, and Wales, and previously lived in Montreal for five years where he punched time as the Associate Poetry Editor of The Incongruous Quarterly as well as the Editor-in-Chief of The Void Magazine at Concordia University.
