Justin Meckes is a writer living in Chapel Hill, NC. At present, he’s contemplating the short move to Durham. There’s such great food there. Justin has published fiction at Quail Bell Magazine, The Broadkill Review, and Map Literary. He’s also published nonfiction at Punchnel’s. In addition, he is the founding editor of Scrutiny and was a finalist in the 2013 NCSU James Hurst Fiction Contest.

Justin is a big fan of film and has been known to shoot a camera from time to time. As a matter of fact, clips from a short film he wrote and directed appeared on IFC‘s Media Lab Shorts Uploaded. Other shorts have played small festivals in Durham, NC and Knoxville, TN.

Right now, he’s busy preparing to send out copies of his manuscript, In the Belly, On the Shore. If you contact him and the response time is a little too slow, read more about him here. You can also follow via Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. Or, if you’d like, write to
