Jared A. Conti
Bio: Jared A. Conti is an enigma even to himself. Over the course of fifteen years and finally a graduate in English in 2011 from Lock Haven University, he continues to reside there managing Avenue 209 Coffee House. An accomplished whistler and sporting an epic beard, Jared owes his exact combinations of talents to the grace of God. He maintains a semblance of stability as a poet, musician, writer and blogger, and reviews book and literature for the local newspaper. Amid dabbling in a varying array of creative projects (often at the same time) Jared has self-published two chapbooks of poetry Back in the Saddle: My Love/Hate Relationship with the Space Cowboy and Least of These. He is hard at work on a series of post-apocalyptic novels set in and around central Pennsylvania.
