A poet, specifically. He's also a web developer, book publisher, graphic designer, and father. Which basically means he never sleeps.

WRITING

The Last Spelling Bee

“Whether he’s writing a to-do list for time travellers, spinning a tall tale of how he won his sixth grade spelling bee, or painting a picture of life in a distant galaxy, Lawless’ work remains spry and lively, full of humor and surprising moments of mature clarity.”

Benjamin Daniel Lawless’ collected poems: 2009-2011.
