Introduction Bill Outlaw hails from the Gulf Coast of Northwest Florida, more specifically Panama City. He spent most of his childhood playing outside, refuting his religious instruction, and hiding in the bathroom reading weird books when he was supposed to be in church. In his early 20’s he escaped to Sarasota, where he attended the New College of Florida, gaining a degree in British and American Literature. He is a First Prize winner in Poetry from the Sarasota Reading Festival, and has published works in New Collage, Backwards & Ugly, the North Carolina Literary Review, as well as contributing poems to the anthology The World According to Goldfish, Volumes One and Two. He has exhibited visual artwork at galleries including Blake Street Studios in Raleigh, North Carolina and the Vision Room in Durham, North Carolina. He currently resides in Gainesville, Florida, and maintains an art blog titled Outlawed Arts and Letters.
Interests Art & Letters. Chips, dips, chains, whips. People who think too much. Distortions. Liminal spaces. The fuzzy territory between Reality and Mind.
