Who, what, etc.

Tetman Callis lives in Chicago, within a gull’s cry of a great lake.

He writes. He has two published books, and his stories and poems have been published in numerous literary magazines.

He photographs. His work has been exhibited in galleries in New Mexico and New York City, and is in private collections.

He also has been a painter, collagist, radio performer, and stage actor.

And he reads and shares from what he reads. Read a book. Read many books. Read magazines, too. Read as many books and magazines as you can. Think about what you have read. Talk with people about what you have read. Almost without intending to, you will find you are making the world a better place.

    Mr. Callis, I can’t seem to find your link to the Gordon Lish notes. I read through them all once. They are priceless. I am grateful to you for publishing them. I’m kicking myself now for not saving the link, because I’m having trouble finding them. Thanks in advance.
