John E. Vérin

John began writing in middle school, starting with mini comic books and short stories. In high school, he started writing poetry. He also explored drawing and photography, which further informed him about evoking images with words. English and Writing was John’s college major, earning a B.A. from Ithaca College in 1991. In his mid-twenties, he became professionally involved in sustainable agriculture and community gardening and wrote educational pieces for a variety of audiences. During a recent 16-month Zen monastic training, John resumed writing poetry and is now pursuing the craft of writing as a career.
