JONATHAN STARKE is a former bodybuilder and boxer. He's harvested seaweed in Ireland, given free hugs in Spain, and flipped pancakes in Denmark. He loves riding trains and wondering about the lives unfolding outside the window. His biggest passions are learning and travel, and he's ventured to 60 countries via hitching, couch surfing, and working exchanges. He plays piano and thrives on diverse workouts and anything related to helping others, especially in the arts.
Jonathan's novel, You've Got Something Coming, received the Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction (PREORDER a copy. Pub: April 24, 2020). His essays, stories, poetry, and plays have appeared in The Sun, Missouri Review, Threepenny Review, North American Review, Greensboro Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Gettysburg Review, Gulf Coast, Shenandoah, Fourth Genre, Brevity, and River Teeth, among others.
Jonathan gives all the thanks in the world to Raymond Carver for igniting his writing fire.
