Our Writers

 
 

Gratitude

There would be no Rejected blog project without the writers who gave the site a chance. Thank you for being brave, sharing the previous failure of your work, and climbing back up into the saddle to try again.

Erin Vance

Erin Emily Ann Vance writes poetry, fiction, and sometimes attempts nonfiction and comedy. She spends her evenings watching horror movies and scrolling through the true horror, which is her spreadsheet of rejected poems, stories, and articles.

Jordan bolay

Jordan Bolay studies questions of trace—the politics of presence in the archive—as a doctoral candidate in the University of Calgary’s English Department. He rocks out on a Geddy Lee signature jazz bass in his scarce spare time.

Hollie Adams and Brian Jansen

In 2016, Hollie and Brian rescued an 8-year-old maltipoo. It only took them 30 seconds to decide to name him Roland Barks thanks to this handy list

Galadriel Watson

Galadriel Watson shoots for the moon but sometimes fizzles somewhere in the upper atmosphere. One day, the rocket thrusters of fiction and creative non-fiction will zoom her there.

Dylan Boyko

Dylan Boyko worries that the brakes on his bike are too worn down to ride safely. He doesn't write about baseball all the time, that would be stupid.

 

 

 

 

Paul Meunier

Paul Meunier is a tacky coffee mug collector, an English PhD student, and studies experimental poetry. Paul also has a visual arts background, and goes to great lengths to make his poems look weird on the page.
