Indy WordLab - December: Brad King

Indy Wordlab is a monthly reading series/open writing workshop. A local writer reads their work, takes questions, and offers a writing experiment, Attendees take 30-40 minutes to write on the prompt, and then reconvene in small groups to share their work. 

Brad King is an assistant professor in Ball State University’s Department of Journalism. along with teaching, King runs The Geeky Press, a writers collective that specializes in esoteric happenings. He hosts a quarterly storytelling series called The Downtown Writers Jam at Indy Reads Books, and a companion podcast that features one-on-one interviews with Midwestern writers. He also runs The Invictus Writers, a project in which selected students work for a year on long-form essays that are published by the collective.

He earned his Masters in Journalism from the University of California at Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism in 2000, and worked for Wired magazine, Wired.com, and MIT’s Technology Review as a reporter, editor, and senior producer.  Since he left the world of magazine journalism, he’s written one book, Dungeons & Dreamers: a story of how computer games became a global culture (ETC Press, 2014), and he’s working on a second, So Far Appalachia: An American Mythology, which is due out in 2015.
