An "essential worker" of the pandemic, Hunter has kept busy by slinging pizzas and stocking up on stories. With each day passing faster and faster he hopes to catch up to his own aspirations.
Reason for Signing Up:
I've really slacked on writing in the past few years. Could pin it on all sorts of reasoning, but since reigniting teen howl, the poetry group that made me passionate for the art, I feel a need to throw myself back into it. I look forward to fitting poetry back into my life, no matter how hectic I may see it to be.
