Ben Clark grew up in Nebraska and now lives in Chicago, where he works as an editor for Muzzle Magazine and Thoughtcrime Press. He has two collections of poetry: if you turn around I will turn around (2015) and Reasons to Leave the Slaughter (2011). Collaboration has become a major part of his writing practice, and he’s been lucky enough to work with GennaRose Nethercott, Whitney Seiler, Colin Winnette, Rebecca Elliott, and Kate Jury.
He’s widely published in both online and print journals, included in several print anthologies, been featured online at Verse Daily, and nominated for a Best of the Net award. He spent this October living with raccoons, sipping whiskey, and collaborating with Josh Gaines at Art Farm Nebraska, a multi-disciplinary artist and writer residency.
