Nikaan Matthew















NAME: Nikaan Matthew

I am a 20 year old student who currently studies Law with Business at Bangor University in North Wales. I grew up in Nottingham, United Kingdom and began writing poetry at the age of 17. At the moment I tend to write around the subject of love and passion but in the future I do hope to be able to expand my subject matter. I never write my poetry on paper and only ever use my laptop to write, whenever I try to write using paper my mind goes blank so I've stopped trying. In the future I hope to publish a collection of poetry entitled 'Droplets of Sunshine' sometime in the future, as well as writing a television sitcom and a fantasy novel, but for now I am just enjoying writing my poetry.

Short Paragraph about the art I do: My art is poetry. Most of my poetry tends to revolve around the themes of love and the different ways in which it can be viewed. When writing I try not to overload on description as I believe that if you let the readers imagination create the images in their head then the poem can have a longer lasting effect. Therefore simplicity is always at the core of everything I write, however I always try to move the reader in a way that they have never felt before.

Jesse James Campen











Name: Jesse James Campen


I am a working student from Maryland, and like to write specifically to entertain. I am currently attending Full Sail University to get my Creative Writing For Entertainment BFA. I like story telling in all forms, including stories from video games and themed music albums.

Right now, the only sort of art I’m involved in is creative writing. More particularly, I like writing sci-fi and fantasy stories, but I’ll settle for anything that makes someone think or laugh too. My technique doesn’t vary from many other writers’. I write a lot, then I edit a lot. One thing is for sure though: I dislike typing, so I write in my pad before typing it all out on my computer.

Anything else: I would like to make it known that I’m in a writing team with my brother, Luke Campen. We’ve got a few movie scripts we’ve been working on, but we would like to change the face of the writing industry as a whole with our stories.

Benjamin F Jones













Name: Benjamin F Jones

Benjamin F Jones is a writer working in South Wales. He loves pizza, photography and moist clay. When it rains he catches drops in his open mouth. He creates prose poetry, flash, absurdist snapshots and humorous fiction. He spends some time clearing up after a small girl and selling screws. Photography is his hobby but writing is his passion.

I love writing which carries language into places it hasn’t been before. I like absurd ideas, which is probably one of the reasons I enjoy writing prose poetry. Prose poems and flash have a freedom that allows them to take flight. I love their ability to encapsulate a whole world in less than 500 words. I have experimented with cut-up but as my writing matures I find my work is more about communication. My earlier works were like puzzles that needed to be solved – now I have a need to connect emotionally with the reader.

I am currently working on a series of prose poems about my experiences as a full-time father in the Rhondda. These pieces will form a portfolio which I hope will get me into university to study prose poetry at MPhil level. I hope this qualification will enhance my career as a writer and enable me to teach creative writing. I would love to hear from anyone passionate about prose poetry, flash or writing in general.

Name: Erika Dawn Price
 
AKA: Processproduct
 
Erika D. Price is a social psychologist, writer, and eternal student living in Chicago, Illinois.  She began writing fiction after three years of reading and writing draining, dry academic prose for her graduate education, and her new found love of creative writing has saved her sanity. She writes all her first drafts on the Notepad app of her iPhone, which sounds insane but is actually quite a convenient way to bang out ideas on the go while simultaneously looking like a vapid, perpetually-texting woman-child. In her spare time she eats marshmallows and wanders around Chicago’s lake shore.

Short paragraph about the kind of art I do: I write fiction, and most of my 'work' falls into one of two camps: short, postmodern flash pieces that rehash or reimagine ancient myths, and longer, realist short stories about how human relationships and existential dread play out in a variety of modern settings. These two types of "work" that I write reflect my underlying philosophy of writing: Every story is either a retelling of myth or a roman a clef. We write what we know-- whether we know it from years of ingesting culture and storytelling tropes, or from our own emotional and moral struggles. When I write, I'm always trying to elicit two simultaneous reactions: A snort of snarky laughter, and a twinge of empathy in the gut. Hopefully, I occasionally succeed at those pursuits. 
 

Here's some work that's been featured on Tumblr's edited 'Prose' tag: http://processproduct.tumblr.com/post/30249862554/the-impasse

 
Here is work of mine that's been selected by Tumblr Fiction's other editors: http://tumblrfiction.tumblr.com/search/processproduct

And I'm published in the August 2012 issue of Efiction Horror: http://www.efictionmag.com/horror/

And of course I'll be in Linguistic Erosion in October and Smashed Cat in December.
 

Education: BA in Psychology and Poli Sci, MA in Social Psychology, workin' on a Psych PhD presently
Likes: Marshmallows, Pumpkin Candy Corns, PRI's Selected Shorts Podcast, postmodernism, existentialism, miniature versions of things
Dislikes: Relationship missives, Pinterest, Makeup, Word count limits, People who think it isn't okay to split infinitives
Status: Consorted
Anything Else:  I firmly believe in the power of creating a writing schedule and sticking to it, and forcing yourself to write even when you don't 'feel inspired'!
