Alec Solomita wrote his first story when he was 12. It was about senility, which should give you a bit of a character note. He continued to write on and off over the years. He’s published fiction in, The Mississippi Review, Southwest Review, Southword Journal, Peacock, and The Adirondack Review, among other publications. He’s been shortlisted by the Bridport Prize and Southword Jornal, and named a finalist by the Noctua Review. His poetry has appeared in Algebra of Owls, Literary Orphans, Far Off Places, MockingHeart Review, Driftwood Press, 3Elements Literary Review, and elsewhere. His chapbook, “Do Not Forsake Me,” was published by Finishing Line Press in October of 2017. He was recently chosen as an honorary finalist by Winning Writers for his story “The Return.” Three of his poems will appear in the forthcoming edition of Fulcrum: An International Anthology of Poetry and Aesthetics. He lives in Massachusetts.
