Hello. I'm Chris - a writer, for lack of a better word, though the extent to which I actually write is up for debate. I have a BA Hons in English and Philosophy from The University of York, and currently work as a library assistant at a further education college in the north of England, but as that's not very interesting I won't talk about that anymore.
Here are some things I've written. There are a few pieces on the popular film site A Bright Wall in a Dark Room, on Terry Gilliam's 1985 masterpiece Brazil, Kevin Smith's Clerks and an obscure art film called The Cabin In The Woods. People seemed to like those. I was also the Deputy Film Editor at York's student newspaper, Nouse, for a while, which means that there's a trove of material if you're into that sort of thing. I even wrote about Gigli once.
Keeping on the whole "I was once a student" thing, which I should really stop at some point, I co-founded York's first and best creative writing anthology, The Looking Glass, which is currently in its fourth year and doing pretty well without me. While I was there, I was production designer and editor-in-chief over two years, and brought it to new strengths. From nothing. So it wasn't hard. But it was pretty impressive by the time I left.
I was also the web designer for Dudestock, a charity music festival in York intended to celebrate the spirit of Dudeism, the religion based on The Big Lebowski. For a number of reasons, that website no longer exists, but you can find out about how it went here.
I've also written a book, called Tales From The End. It's a couple of years old, but there are still a few good pieces. I suggest starting in the middle. I have a new one out this year. I hope.
If you want to get in touch, you can do that here.
Oh, and okay. I guess I have a blog, too.
