Ben: I’ve got one year left in a Minnesota MFA program. When I’m not studying or teaching, I can often be found playing video games, reading, or watching TV with my wife. My tastes in media trend toward the nerdy, but I try to read an omnivorously as possible. Right now I’m working on a novel about a group of paranormal investigators.
Josh: I’m in my second year of an MA program at West Virginia University studying early modern literature. I read as much fun genre (usually fantasy, but we’re not in a committed relationship or anything) fiction as possible. I’m currently writing a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to school to be a wizard; it’s going to be huge.
