Founder and editor of H_NGM_N literary journal and H_NGM_N BKS, Nate Pritts was born in Syracuse, New York. He earned an MFA from Warren Wilson College in 2000 and a PhD in creative writing and British Romanticism from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, in 2003. His full-length collections of poetry include Sensational Spectacular (2007), Honorary Astronaut (2008), and The Wonderfull Yeare: a shepherd’s calendar (2010). Pritts has been compared to the New York School poets, including Frank O’Hara, for his joyous revelry in shifting registers of language. Olivia Cronk, reviewing for Bookslut, observed: “Pritts uses the language, tone, and awkward silliness of a 1950s sci-fi-comicbook-pow-bang-robot-technical-failure world.” Cronk ultimately identified Pitts as an “everyman, heart wrenchingly casting his powerless fist up into the air as the flying machines and automated check-out lines further crush his soul.”
Pritts has taught business writing and communication, creative writing for talented high school students, and workshops for the Downtown Writer’s Center/YMCA in Syracuse, New York.
