Who is Jordan Blum?

“Jordan Blum is an eccentric, sarcastic, and overly critical bastard who likes to write in the third person.” – Anonymous

Okay, now for the serious…

I earned my MFA in Fiction in 2011 and I currently teach at several colleges, which is both a blessing and a curse (as any professor will tell you). I like to incorporate a variety of artistic forms into my courses in an attempt to explore how creative minds use their mediums for social commentary.

I’m also a professional pop culture writer (mostly, I’m a music journalist with a specialty in progressive rock/metal). I’m currently an Associate Editor at Popmatters and contributor to Progression Magazine, Rock Society MagazineRebel Noise, PROGMetal InjectionPasteThe Prog ReportPopWrapped, and The Lit Pub, among other places.

Musically, I work under the pseudonym Neglected Spoon. My first album will be out as soon as I kick myself in the ass enough to create it.

Finally, I’m the founder and Editor-in-Chief of The Bookends Review, an online creative arts journal. We publish every Monday and Friday (and most Wednesdays) and release a ‘Best of’ print anthology at the end of every year. Please, check us out!

Please feel free to contact me via email (JordanBlum87@yahoo.com), Facebook, and/or Twitter. And thanks for being here 🙂
