Juan Morales, The Handyman's Guide to Endtimes

In Morales's newest collection, an imagined zombie apocalypse intertwines with personal narrative. From zombie dating to the sin of popcorn ceilings, these poems investigate the nature of impermanence while celebrating the complexities of life. Juan J.

He grew up in Colorado hearing family stories that inspired much of his first book of poetry, Friday and the Year that Followed (2006).  His poetry has appeared in Acentos ReviewBorder SensesPALABRAPoet LoreWashington SquareZone 3, and other journals.  He is the Director of Creative Writing and an Assistant Professor at Colorado State University-Pueblo, where he also curates the Southern Colorado Reading Series and is the faculty sponsor for the student literary magazine Tempered Steel.
