The Stabby Pen

We write. We rant. We wrestle the magic.


Howdy! I’m Jonathan Lister. I’m a writer, though that sort of seems obvious doesn’t it? I mean, here I am typing away…

I hold in my tight little fingers a Bachelor of Arts in English from Shippensburg University (2004) and a Master of Fine Arts in Writing & Poetics from Naropa University (2007). I’m also a full-time freelance writer with work appearing in outlets of USA Today, The Houston Chronicle and Image Magazine among others. The Oxford comma still eludes me.

This is my blog. It sounds more impressive than it actually is. Comments are free reign around here so please offer words of encouragement, tell me I suck, or just ask questions. I only have two rules: no weird stuff and no talk about Jay Cutler. No one likes you Jay Cutler. No one.

Email is the swiftest:
