Robert McKown

I am 34 years old. A graduate of Long Ridge Writer’s Group. I write both fiction and non-fiction. I’ve had short stories published in small publications such as Downstate Story and Conceit.

I was an honorable mention award winner of the PEN American Prison Writing Contest of 2007 for the first chapter of my memoir Bobby’s Innocence. I am currently working on my novel Chronicles of a Fern.
