Josh Potter

Josh Potter is a writer based in Seattle whose prose is mainly concerned with the ways in which human interiority and physical landscapes relate. He grew up in Detroit, Michigan and studied journalism in Montana and moved to Seattle to work in outdoor education before earning his Masters in Fine Art at the University of Washington. Potter’s work attempts to reflect and examine his own complicity in colonial erasure as a white transplant to Seattle and the ways in which his own personal narrative is both inseparable and independent from national trauma. His stories and essays question how human conflict shapes geography. His personal essays have been featured in Guernica, Cascadia Rising and the New Limestone Review. His fiction has appeared in Driftwood Press, Sick Lit, City Arts and elsewhere. His short story, Snowdrift, won the JuxtaProse fiction contest in 2017.
