Dylan Fisher, Founding Editor

Dylan Bio Postcard Front

Is Dylan from California? Mill Valley? Did he go to college in Iowa? And study Anthropology? Did he squint at the Iowan cornfields, on windy nights, and pretend they were the Pacific Ocean? Near which he was raised? Does he now live in Minnesota? Duluth? The San Francisco of the Midwest? The Venice of Minnesota? Where Lake Superior replaces the cornfields and the ocean? Does he write? On occasion? Did he once believe he was a Tyrannosaurus-Rex​ reincarnate? Once anthropomorphize his cornfields? His ​U.S. States? Yes. But he doesn’t do that anymore.
