About

Writer, blogger, editor, and fan of the human experience, I love hearing the stories of others and taking on as many projects as I can. I’m the Editor In Chief and a contributing writer at Making Comics Worldwide and the Senior Editor at the San Diego State University Press. Currently an MFA Graduate student at SDSU, I’m studying the art of publishing in the digital age and am always on the look out for the new and exciting.

  1. Sounds good dudes and dudettes. Assuming some of you are dudes and some of you are dudettes. I don’t know. I just know I’m glad you didn’t use the term “epic stuff.” Everything is so epic nowadays, you know? Someone will take a photo of their Corn Flakes and label it as epic. Well, anyway, looking forward to following along. Cheers from the Dimwit.

    • My friend. Thank you for saying this. I am always tempted to type the word epic no matter how much I cringe. It’s like I have that phantom limb syndrome or something. Same goes for awesome, etc., and … etc.

      Anyway…

  3. Thank you for following my blog! I’m discovering your website with interest. I’m trying to think what ‘defies convention’ in an age where everything is allowed, but where so much publishing has been eaten up by the celebrity culture. Interesting challenge. I hope it grows!

    • Thanks for checking us out! It’s true, we live in an age where everything is allowed, but sadly not enough of it is appreciated or even given notice. We want to bring to the surface that kind of content that would otherwise never see the light of day because of, as you said, the “celebrity culture” that permeates society today!

      • I’m delighted to read that. We need spaces like this, where we can breathe a little and just discover and share good writing or art, without constant anxiety. A little anxiety can be good for culture, but too much will turn us and what we do into wrecks. I was reading a New Yorker article a while ago, about writers and Twitter. This sentence struck me: ‘This is one of the central paradoxes of our culture—everything is swallowed into oblivion but nothing goes away.’

      • Woah, that’s a great line. And it’s so true! Our culture really does exist as a black hole, releasing only a pittance of what it absorbs. And here we are, holding fast to rocks and dreams, determined not to be pulled in with the rest of the world. It’s exciting stuff, and it makes what we all do, as writers and artists and musicians and bloggers, that much more important.
