The Writing Process Blog Tour continues as I hand off my first torch to Pete Armetta, an amazing writer who I’m proud to be able to say ‘I knew him then…’. Here’s some information about Pete (which I did not write), to be followed by Pete’s answers to a few questions which are actually harder to answer than one might think. So first, heeeeeeere’s Pete:

Pete Armetta is a new writer of Flash Fiction, Poetry, Short Stories and Essays. With a style that’s accessible and broad, his poetry and stories fend off conventionality.

He’s impossible to pigeonhole.

Pete’s a native New Yorker living in Charlottesville, VA, via too many other places to count. It’s a life of big sky and mountains and dogwoods and hawks. Of back roads and wood-burning stoves. It’s bourbon and mint from the garden in spring and swimming in the river in summer. Currently pursuing writing fellowships and residencies, Pete writes full-time, shedding that former button-down existence to fully embrace his craft.

You only live once right?

Pete’s work has been published or is upcoming in Estuary Magazine, Hük Magazine, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, Inclement Magazine, Zest Literary Journal, Gadfly Magazine, The River Journal, Marco Polo Arts Mag, Expats Poetry, Subtle Fiction, Take It To The Street Poetry, Best New Poems, Cynic Magazine, Blue Lake Review, the Stone Path Review and numerous anthologies. His short stories have been regularly featured in The Piker Press. Pete’s first poetry chapbook, New Future was published by Lost & Found Press in 2012 and is free for the taking.
