Meet Charles Cole

Meet Charles Cole 1

Charles Cole loved his undergraduate years at a small, rural Maine college. In the summer of 2011, he “awoke” much older, when he noticed the Internet had made publishing so much more accessible.

Charles lives with his family in Maine on land passed down by his great-great grandfather. He has been previously published in alongstoryshort, The Blue Crow, The Sandy River Review, The Café Review, Black Petals and has had a short play accepted by the Maine Playwrights Festival.
