Andre Lewis Carter
André Lewis Carter writes fiction, poetry, and plays in the urban sprawl of Portland, Oregon. He is a reader for Kaylie Jones Books, an imprint of Akashic Books, and Hippocampus Magazine & Books. His work has appeared in The Journal of Graduate Liberal Studies. André’s one act play, "Reaction," was staged at the Last Theater Conference in Valdez, AK. After spending thirty years as a navy sailor he realized that he had acquired many stories, some clean enough to share. André has a M.A. in fiction writing and a M.F.A. in creative writing from the Wilkes University Graduate Creative Writing Program where he was a Beverly Blakeslee Hiscox Scholar. He is married to a very patient woman who occasionally tells dirty jokes.
