Hi. I'm Thom.
I run the upcoming online literary magazine INFINITE↓SCROLL. I broadcast my useless thoughts via a blog called FRAGMENTS over on Substack. I'm also an occasional film crew member, and sometimes make things on itch.io. Currently, I teach composition in the First-Year Writing program at Rowan University.
You can reach me across the web at [email protected]
WHAT I'M DOING NOW
- Working on a collection of essays on car culture in America.
- Writing a lot of shorter poems/haiku.
- Falling behind in my work.
- Looking forward to spring break.
