Patrick Coleman earned a BA from the University of California, Irvine, where he studied with Jim McMichael and Michelle Latiolais, and later received an MFA from Indiana University. His short stories and prose poems have appeared recently in Hobart, Black Warrior Review, ZYZZYVA, and the Utne Reader. Currently, he's writing and editing an exhibition catalogue on the relationship between visual arts and music, forthcoming from Yale University Press, all the while finding himself "neck-deep in a fourth draft of a novel."
