A year ago @hobartpulp published an essay I wrote about my first winter in DC.

For Dec ‘20, I’m your editor for non-fiction. Send your work! I like compelling narrative and interesting form. Be bold, daring, take risks. Put it on the page.

My iconic friend wants your creative non-fiction for @hobartpulp!
