Thom Dunn is a writer, musician, and new media artist, as well as a staff writer at Upworthy. His plays have been performed in New York, Boston, Hollywood, and Alaska, and he is currently a Playwriting Fellow at the Huntington Theatre Company, supported by the Stanford Calderwood Fund for New American Plays. He has published short fiction withCrossed Genres/Long Hidden; comic books for Grayhaven Comics andNinth Art Press; essays, criticisms, and other vaguely-non-fictional ramblings for Quirk Books and Tor.com; and poetry in Asimov’s and others. A graduate of the Clarion Writer’s Workshop at UCSD and Emerson College, Thom enjoys Oxford commas, metaphysics, and romantic clichés (especially when they involve whiskey), and firmly believes that Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” is the single greatest atrocity ever committed against mankind. He lives in Boston with his wife and way too many weird stringed instruments.
