Nick Flynn is an award-winning poet, playwright, and memoirist. His poetry and prose explore the tenuous membrane that separates comfortable, everyday existence from the desperate margins of society, keeping, as the Village Voice describes it, “both the tragic and the redemptive possibilities open.”
He is author of three memoirs, The Reenactments, The Ticking Is the Bomb, and Being Flynn, which has been translated into 15 languages and was made into a movie starring Robert DeNiro and Julianne Moore. He is also author of four books of poetry, and his book Some Ether won the PEN/Joyce Osterweil Award.
Nick has received fellowships from, among other organizations, the Guggenheim Foundation and the Library of Congress, and his work is featured internationally in the media, including in the LA Times, New Yorker, New York Times, Huffington Post, and Paris Review, and on Fresh Air and This American Life. Each spring, he teaches in the University of Houston’s creative writing program.
