Author's Bio

J. D. Nelson (b. 1971) experiments with words in his subterranean laboratory. More than 2,000 of his poems have appeared in more than 275 small press publications, worldwide, in print and online.

He is the author of several collections of poetry, including Cinderella City (The Red Ceilings Press, 2012).

His poem, “to mask a little bird” was nominated for Best of the Net in 2021.

Nelson’s work is influenced by the Beat writers, especially the cut-up techniques pioneered by William S. Burroughs and Jack Kerouac’s spontaneous prose techniques. Most of his work is created through the cutting up and collaging of his own freewriting. His work is also influenced by Dada and Surrealism.

Nelson lives in Colorado, USA.
