About Patrick

Actually, I’d rather talk about you…

but since that’s not an option, here’s a little more information about me.

I am a writer and editor with an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from Columbia College Chicago (2015) and a BS in Arts Administration from Butler University (2010). I also hold a certificate in grant proposal writing from the University of Notre Dame (2019).

After finishing my MFA, I completed a writing residency at the Vermont Studio Center and became the Managing Editor of Ghost Proposal, a hybrid literary journal and press.

My writing has appeared in Ranker, Entropy, The Collapsar, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, and Redivider among others. You can view all of my publications here.
