About the Author

While most kids wanted to be an astronaut or a firefighter when they grow up, Nathan wanted to be a writer. Ever since a young age, he has been captivated by stories and how they shape us. This passion for storytelling led him to pursue a B.F.A. from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and an M.A. in English at the University of North Carolina Charlotte.

With his published debut with Goodnight Youth: Poems in 2019, Nathan has established himself as an emerging young voice. His poetry, fiction, and essays have been featured in numerous websites and magazines such as Unstamatic Micro Lit MagazineRokku Panku, and South Florida Poetry Journal. He is also the founder/editor-in-chief of New Note Poetry, an online poetry magazine.
