Tetman Callis lives in Chicago, within a gull’s cry of a great lake. He writes. He photographs. He also has been a painter, collagist, radio performer, and stage actor.

And he reads and shares from what he reads. Buy a book. Buy many books. Buy magazines, too. Read as many books and magazines as you can. 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.
