–Matt Mullins’ three-year old daughter just walked into the room wearing wire and nylon angel wings and told him to try harder. At what, she didn’t say. Matt lives in Muncie, Indiana, where he writes poetry, fiction, screenplays, makes experimental films, and builds interactive interfaces for his stories and poems. His writing has recently appeared in Pleiades, Hunger Mountain, Harpur Palate, Hobart, decomP, and kill author. He writes in what is essentially an attic with a single, cracked octagonal window through which he sees the world. He also reads too much into pointed yet ambiguous things said by children wearing wire and nylon angel wings. You can find pieces of him at mullmullingitover.blogspot.com.
