Michael A. Arnzen:
One of the Writers on Writing @ Riley’s

May 25th, 2014

Arnzen-GoingLiveIVJun13-sqAs a writer who often transcends what have become art’s traditional boundaries, Michael A. Arnzen personifies the role of the 21-st Century scop.

Often funny, always terrifying, Michael Arnzen has created everything from prize-winning novels (Grave Markings) to poetry books (The Gorelets Omnibus) to refrigerator magnets (The Fridge of the Damned).

He is also the creator of Audiovile, a rocking CD in which he performs stories from 100 Jolts: Shockingly Short Stories, his Stoker-Award nominated collection of flash fiction stories.

Arnzen is also a Professor of English serving as Chair of the Humanities at Seton Hill University, home of the MFA in Writing Popular Fiction, near Pittsburgh, where he has taught since 1999.

He is also one of the contributors to Many Genres One Craft: Lessons in Writing Popular Fiction.

Members of WorD will also be on hand to share their writing life stories.

If you’ve got a story to share, or if you’d like to be on hand when the award-winning writers tell their tales, you’ll want to be at Riley’s Pour House between 8:00 and 9:30 PM on Tuesday, May 27.

It’s the write place to be.
