Wilson Koewing is a writer from South Carolina who currently lives in Denver, Colorado. His flash fiction, short stories and essays have appeared or are forthcoming in X-R-A-Y, Wigleaf, Hobart, Ghost Parachute, New World Writing, The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts, Maudlin House, Trampset, Bending Genres, No Contact and Pembroke Magazine among others. He received an MFA from The Creative Writing Workshop at The University of New Orleans where he primarily studied screenwriting.
Much of his aesthetic for flash fiction and short stories draws inspiration from movies and television and the sparse writing style present in screenplays. His work often employs stark minimalism punctuated by disturbing or random occurrences, doomed relationships and a general sense of millennial malaise. He is currently piecing together a hybrid collection of short stories and flash fiction.
When not writing he hikes with his hound dog, Odie, plays billiards, watches old films, travels whenever possible, and enjoys trying new restaurants and breweries.
Some of his favorite writers are Peter Orner, Denis Johnson, David Benioff, Percival Everett, John Williams, Pedro Juan Gutierrez and Patricia Highsmith. He is currently reading “Telephone” by Percival Everett and “A Sport and a Past Time” by James Salter. His favorite book is “Stoner” by John Williams.
