Josh Gauthier is a Maine-based writer and playwright focusing primarily on speculative fiction. He earned an MFA in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast Program where he concentrated on popular fiction.

He is involved with the Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance, the local theater community, and previously co-organized two different writing series: Local Writers Read in Lewiston, Maine, which spotlighted Maine writers and their work–and Writers, Readers, and the Stories We Love, which featured a monthly guest to discuss writing craft and storytelling.

During the day, Josh works as a librarian. In his free time, he can be found reading, watching movies, gaming, and drinking too much coffee in order to sustain his dual caffeine-writing habit.

You can connect with him online for updates and ongoing discussion of writing, pop culture, dogs, puns, and other such things:
