Author: Jordan Thomas
Jordan K. Thomas is a black prose writer from the Midwest. He was a 2016 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, received two summer research fellowships from the University of Minnesota in 2015 and 2016, and was a finalist for the 2015 Indiana Review Nonfiction Prize.
He is currently working on a memoir, tentatively titled This Skin is Forever, focused on his relationship to his blackness, the toxicity of masculinity in general and black masculinity in particular, addiction and the Internet, and a black boy’s quest to become nothing, to feel nothing at all.
His work has appeared or is forthcoming in The Toast, Entropy Magazine, Kenyon Review Online, and Kweli Journal.
