Larry Clow is a writer, editor, frequent nerd trivia champion and amateur zombie wrangler.
He’s currently working on his first book, People You May Know, a memoir about adoption and social media. He is represented by Jennifer Chen Tran at Bradford Literary Agency. His writing on adoption has appeared at Secret Sons and Daughters and in the anthology Flip The Script: Adult Adoptee Anthology. He’s also had a flash nonfiction essay published in Brevity.
A long-time denizen of the New England coast, Larry spent 15 years writing and editing for newspapers and magazines in the region. He was the editor of the now-defunct New Hampshire weekly papers The Sound and The Wire. At The Wire, his weekly cult movie review column Tales from the Video Vault ran for seven years and developed a devoted following. His journalism and arts and culture coverage appeared in Foster’s Daily Democrat, HippoPress Manchester, The Square, Dispatch, and Take Magazine. He’s also a contributing writer for The University of New Hampshire Magazine. He was also a regular performer at regional live storytelling events.
Larry received his MFA from the University of New Hampshire. He is the founder of the Dover Zombie Walk, New Hampshire’s longest-running zombie event, now in its 13th year. Because writing and editing alone don’t pay the bills, he’s also worked as a librarian, teacher, comic store manager, standardized test-scorer, pool attendant and other non-profitable careers. He hosted a podcast before podcasts were cool, blogged about bacon before that trend was exhausted and has read his original poetry about William Shatner in public on no fewer than three occasions. He now lives and writes in the third person in the Midwest, but you can find him on Twitter, where he is probably posting about gaming, tea, time travel or writing, or sign up for his newsletter.
