Joshua Kleinberg
is a creative writer and teacher based in Miami.

Here he is giving a lecture…

“Adventurous plot is kind of a lizard-brain thing; it’s a more ravenous pursuit than the literary. The particular flavor of ‘tingle in the spine’ that is literary fiction‘s best quality is the feeling of communion that jumps you when you finally read something you’d already known—but never in words. With literary fiction, the best quality creative writing is a conversation across time. A conversation between two people who understand each other, if only glancingly.”

…and here he is reading some poems.

“Every time you write a poem that isn’t a villanelle,

you are rejecting the pertinence of the villanelle form.

By disliking dubstep, one implicitly votes

for a world in which dubstep doesn’t exist.

Fabulous dreams are an argument against

whatever you do with your days.

It’s a well-known fact that most stars are satellites

and most satellites wish they were rock, still.

When you are sad your eyelids gain mass.

If you cry hard enough, you do not need to shower.

.9% of smokers die every year, which means

you’re pretty much definitely not getting past

a hundred and eleven (if you smoke).

Beats headphones by Dre sound like

farts in a Folgers can.

The world was not made for this many people.

It was made for this guy I know, Devin.”

This is his résumé…
