Jonathan Starke

Author's Bio

Jonathan Starke is a former bodybuilder and boxer who loves vagabonding the globe and is often missing the Golden (80s) and Attitude (90s) eras of professional wrestling. He is the founding editor of a literary magazine for the underdog called Palooka (www.palookamag.com) and serves as a writing coach at www.jonathanstarke.com. His essays and stories have appeared in The Sun, Missouri Review, Threepenny Review, North American Review, Shenandoah, Brevity, Michigan Quarterly Review, River Teeth, Third Coast, Passages North, Fourth Genre, and Post Road, among others. You might find him watching old boxing matches on a Sunday evening. You might not.
