About John

John Wiswell is a mammal. He graduated Bennington College in 2005, and the Viable Paradise 17 workshop in 2013. He has suffered from a painful neuromuscular syndrome since 1993, and thinks healthy people's capacity to complain is very funny. He finds a lot of things very funny, which is why so many of his stories are humorous.

John's work has appeared at Urban Fantasy Magazine, Weird Tales, SF Signal, Flash Fiction Online, Metro Fiction, and Every Day Fiction. In 2010 he was nominated for the Pushcart Prize for "Sologamous.

He posted daily on The Bathroom Monologues for six years, up until August of 2013, and continues now on a less-daily basis. Bathroom Monologues are flash fiction, list fiction, monologues, dialogues, essays and other prose composed entirely while he's up and away from the computer for a short time. They began when he took bathroom breaks from studying in college. The point is always to talk about something completely different from whatever he's working on at the desk. It's a great exercise to keep the mind limber and the creative drive alive. He recommends trying it at home.
