Meet Our Readers: Connor Coyne

Tuesday Funk is excited that Connor Coyne, founder of The Gothic Funk Nation and Tuesday Funk, is returning to our series! None more excited than me. Over four years ago, Reinhardt Suarez and I introduced Connor at our New York reading Fiction Flask (now Guerrilla Lit).

There's something about a circle here...I can't put my finger on it...circle, circle, circle...

What matters is this: Connor = Excitement! Did I mention that he also published his first novel last month? EXCITEMENT!

Connor grew up in the East Village of Flint, Michigan, and has lived in Chicago and New York City. He earned his BA from the University of Chicago and his MFA from the New School. He has written plays, poetry, short stories, and novels, and his work has been published in Santa Clara Review, Moria Poetry Zine, Dick Pig Review, The Saturnine Detractor, and the Flint Broadside.

He has a website at connorcoyne.com and a blog devoted to the apotheosis of the Gothic. This year he published his first novel, Hungry Rats, but he is even more excited by the birth of his daughter, Mary Adelina.

Join Tuesday Funk October 5th at 7:30 p.m. to see Connor and all of our great readers.
