MICHAEL MANIS
(3rd Year Fiction) I was born in Ohio and spent my formative years in Urbandale, Iowa before moving near Philadelphia. I lived as a student in Shippensburg for four years, which is located in Central Pennsylvania, an odd region where modern decadence (me) meets conservative austerity (The Amish/Crazy Civil War People). I feel as if this clash of past and present has found its way into my writing. My most recent work employs history as a laboratory in which I can explore modern problems. I also love comic books
