Joe Wadlington grew up in the Appalachian Mountains near, but not near enough, to Dollywood.
Now he lives in San Francisco where he writes about dating, gay stuff, technology, and when they sabotage each other. He’s actively submitting a humorous activity book about men who don’t text back to agents and publishers.
He’s been published in The New Yorker, The Rumpus, Food & Wine Magazine, the satire collection Loose Lips (Grand Central Publishing), and Sparkle & Blink. He runs the weekly writing prompt newsletter, Drafts. He was named one of the “13 Bay Area Writers to Watch and Read” of 2016.
He’s a founding member of the Finishing School writer’s workshop and attended the Cuttyhunk Island Writer’s Residency in fall, 2017.
