Creative Writer | Visual Artist | Teacher
Hi! I'm Erik (he/they). I'm a writer and visual artist based in Los Angeles.
I am the author of 6 books of poetry, including Eye, Apocalypse (forthcoming from Spuyten Duyvil Press later this year). My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best Microfictions, and Best of the Net, and has been an honorable mention for Survision's inaugural James Tate Chapbook Prize.
I hold an MFA from Notre Dame, where I was a Princeton INCH scholar and Presidential Fellow, and am currently a Ph.D. student in creative writing at the University of Glasgow and a graduate certificate student in screenwriting at Missouri State University.
I am a founding editor of hush lit: a journal of noise , a journal of experimental writing and image.
Most of my recent creative and academic work focuses on ecological investigations as well as human and nonhuman interfaces. Representatives of this work have been published in Mosaic: An Interdisciplinary Critical Journal and Terse Journal.
