About

Run. Write. Repeat. That’s my creative process. Simple as that. There’s just something about my feet moving that helps me think clearer. I've published two books and a baker’s dozen of poems. You can find the books stabilizing my wobbly coffee table or on Amazon. I share a name with a suspected IRA terrorist from the 1960's and was placed on the No Fly list at the age of 13. I like to drink coffee and do work that matters. Pretty high maintenance— I know. And since you’re still reading, I just want to let you know that I get sunburnt when eating Sun Chips. It’s a ginger thing.

Shoot me an email: Will.Patterson19@gmail.com. It’s like the Bat Signal but in my pocket

Or, stalk me— that’s cool too
