Jamie McCulloch spent too much of his youth in the bars of New York, and for his sins lives in New Jersey and teaches high school students how to write. Actually, New Jersey isn't so bad, and it might be more accurate to say that his students are teaching him how to write. He lives with his wife and daughter and is pursuing an MFA (even if it kills him). His stories have appeared in The Kelsey Review and The Redbridge Review. He has an article forthcoming in The International Fiction Review and hopes to finish the novel he's working on before the MFA (or parenthood) does him in.
