I fell in love with literature by chance, taking an introductory course in my freshman year of college. During office hours, one of my professors described the English department as a well or a drain, collecting all the students that’d leaked out of other programs. Much to my bank account’s disappointment, I too slid from architecture down into that drain, and today I’m doing everything I can to make those years of reading books worthwhile.
In June of 2009 I took over as Managing Editor of Xenith, a literary webzine, and in the summer of 2011 I launched Mill City Bibliophile, a blog on all things local and literary in Minneapolis. My fiction has appeared in Paper Darts, Revolver, and is forthcoming in dislocate. My essays, articles, and reviews have appeared in the Los Angeles Review of Books, Full Stop Magazine, Bookslut, and the Plougshares blog. I’m still working on my novel.
In addition, I’m slowly building a list of clients for freelance copywriting and editing. I wield a mean sentence and am open to any project—be it a product catalogue, 400 page novel, grant application, TDS, or sell sheet—as long as it’s in English or some recognizable perversion thereof. To discuss rates and availability, please contact me via e-mail. I can be reached at email@example.com.
I tend to forget about this blog, so don’t be afraid to follow me on Twitter.
