Kenny Gould Introduces New Home For Online Writing
Hello! Welcome to the first post on my new blog. I’m starting this puppy because I recently published my first book — The Brewing Cloud — and realized it probably makes sense to have some type of online presence that extends beyond the one pager I’d been hosting on Wix.
If we’ve never met, my name is Kenny Gould and I’m a writer. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, moved around a lot as a kid, and eventually settled at Duke University by way of Phillips Academy Andover.
At Duke, I studied English and Creative Writing. In 2013, I moved to New York City, where I worked for a variety of digital magazines. After a brief stint in Northern California, I moved back to Pittsburgh, where I received my MFA in Fiction and started Hop Culture, a digital magazine covering the craft beer industry. Today, I spend most of my time writing, hanging out with my girlfriend and cat, and throwing beer festivals.
If you’re interested, check out some of my writing at Hop Culture or Forbes, or go ahead and pick up my new book. You can also follow me on Instagram at @hopcultureken. Warning — it’s a lot of cat pictures.
For the foreseeable future, I’m going to use this site as a platform to share updates about my writing life. If there are any tips, tricks, or resources that I think would be helpful, I’ll include those as well.
