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.
