Josh Weir Bio
Josh Weir is a writer living and working in the Dallas Fort Worth area. He has been published in Mad Swirl, Barbaric Yawp, DFW Poetry Review, Death List Five, and was a part of The Mad Swirlabout multimedia extravaganza of 2009. His gritty writing style explores the topics of poverty and the rejection of being an outsider. He considers writing a place of comfort in and uncomfortable world. His pressence on the microphone is subtle intensity, raw emotion and unapologetic truth. Josh's new chapbbok, 'Not So Super After All' is now available at Cliff Notes Prolonged Media.
