Brian Baumgart

Brian Baumgart’s collection of poems, Rules for Loving Right, was released from Sweet Publications in 2017, and his prose and poetry have appeared in a number of print and online journals, including Noctua Review, Cleaver, SLAB, Ruminate, Journal of Wild Culture, and The Good Men Project. He is the Director of the AFA in Creative Writing Program at North Hennepin Community College, just outside Minneapolis, and is 2018 Artist-in-Residence at the University of Minnesota Cedar Creek Ecological Science Reserve. He has an MFA from Minnesota State University-Mankato. His son adores mythological monsters and cryptids, and his daughter has learned to croak “Redrum” while angling her finger at strangers; he will gladly accept responsibility for these children.
