About

I’m Eric Shay Howard. I have a BA in English from the University of Louisville.

I live in Louisville, Kentucky. I’m in my thirties. Before college, I had various types of jobs, including retail and food service. In college I worked in a library.

I was formerly an Americorps Kentucky member, serving as an educator in a student empowerment program at Global Game Changers, a nonprofit in Louisville, for the spring/summer of 2018.

On my blog, I write about my life, literature, education, LGBTQ issues, and creative writing. I also write opinions and reviews about literary books. All opinions and views are my own.

Sometimes I write about current events or films, or complain about work. Other times I use my blog as an excuse to get out of the house and do things around Louisville. The blog is also a launch pad for other blogs and projects that I become interested in for whatever reason. If I’m being completely honest, I just write things and post them here. I try to post new content a few times a week.

I’m the founder and editor of Likely Red Press, a small literary press and online literary journal.

I started the literary magazine my senior year at UofL so that I’d have writerly-tasks to do after I graduated. It’s free to read online. Submissions are always open. See the submissions page on the journal for details.

I love writing fiction in my spare time, usually short stories.

I write, rewrite, submit, and mostly get rejection letters for my stories. Gender and LGBTQ issues tend to come up in my work fairly often.

I eventually want to go get my MFA in fiction. Until then, I’m just sort of trying everything I want and hoping that something sticks.

If you want to keep up with my blog and everything else that I do, you should sign up for my email list. It’s free and I won’t bombard you with emails. You’ll only get emails once in a blue moon about my work. I don’t share your email addresses with others. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Please feel free to follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook. You can also contact me via my contact page for business inquiries.
