Christopher Kuhl is a widely published poet, but has begun to explore short fiction. His recent story, "Wade," was awarded Editor's Choice 2016 in INSCAPE. As a poet, he is an active reader of his work across northern Illinois (but publications cover a lot more ground, both in the USA and, occasionally, Canada). On occasion, Christopher gives talks and workshops for curious non-writers. His writing is wide-ranging in content and form. Music, in which he holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in composition, plays an important role in the sounds and shapes of his language. He also studies classical Hebrew.
