Justin Heinze

Justin graduated with a BA in English from St. Joseph’s University in 2009, where he ran track and cross country. He volunteered with Americorps for a few years in California, Arizona, and Montana, leading backcountry conservation crews, before writing for a Florida daily newspaper and working on an organic farm in Tanzania. His traveling curriculum included Conrad, Faulkner, and Cormac McCarthy. His father read him an Illustrated Classics edition ofMoby-Dick as a child and the book has been a part of his life ever since. His interests include nature writing in fiction, and identifying themes of environmental stewardship that serve as a call to social action, particularly in late 19th and early 20th century American literature. In his spare time Justin enjoys long distance running and writing fiction about the desert.
