I hold a Master of Library and Information Science from St. Catherine University and a BA in English from the University of Minnesota. In addition to working at a literary magazine, I also moonlight as a freelance writer and archivist. I’m currently located in Minneapolis and my pop culture interests span gothic novels to grindcore and everything in between. Talk to me @kirvingbeson.
