I am a graduate of the Clarion Writer’s Workshop in San Diego and an MFA candidate at the University of Alabama. I have had work in the Indiana Review, the Nashville Review, Quarterly West, Puerto del Sol, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Fanzine, and other places. Also I have too many opinions about Ali Smith, Moby-Dick, Prince, The Last Samurai, the Orpheus myth, and Young Thug. I am on Twitter @jempburke and exclusively tweet garbage. Putting this bio in first person makes it sound much more stilted and weird than it used to but here we are.
