Josh Goller – Editor


Josh Goller sprouted in Wisconsin, but transplanted to the damp and gloom of the Pacific Northwest. He earned his MFA in Fiction at Pacific University and now resides in Portland where he enjoys driving through fog and hipster-watching. When he’s not skulking around behind the curtain, he can be found critiquing music, film, and books for Spectrum Culture, where he also serves as Managing Editor, and also reviewing music as a contributing writer for Slant Magazine. His short fiction, arts & culture articles, lists, and essays have appeared in many online and print publications.
