John Sexton

John Sexton

John’s writing shows extraordinarily creative thinking.  Nothing he writes is predictable or cliché.  This is both challenging and stimulating for readers.  He enjoys a masterful and playful control of concept and composition, writing at a rare level of artfulness at his current stage of development.”  John is a student at The Pine School.  John says of himself, “The words that I pick, the imagery that I pluck, and the syntax I conquer are my everything.  My stories aim to break genre traditions; they’re part fabulism, horror, dramedy, and magic realism all in one.  I am a paramour of this beautiful language.  It has taken me far, and I want to take it far, as well.”  John intends to major in journalism in college focusing on creative journalism and critique writing.  His goal is to become a writer-in-residence at a major university.
