Born and raised in metro New York, Charles Joseph lives and writes deep in the heart of New Jersey. Peppered by a battery of life experiences—good, great, bad, and worse—Charles is the author of NO OUTLET (a novel) that he’s currently shopping to agents and publishers, five poetry chapbooks, and Chameleon (Omnibus Unum 2012-2016) a collection of poems and stories. His poems, short stories, and creative non-fiction have appeared in various literary journals and online magazines in the United States and abroad. He’s been a featured poet at numerous live poetry events in his area. And he is the founding editor of Indigent Press, a micro press that publishes limited-run twelve poem chapbooks for poets with unique voices. At the moment Charles is working on a couple of new projects, and writing a few poems here and there as they come.
