"...but I sure remember LookBaby. Its a damn fine book sir."
(Paul Corman-Roberts, founder, Beast Crawl)
David Welper has an MA in Creative Writing from Wayne State University in Detroit (2003). His work appears in several publications and he's been a featured reader in NYC, Detroit, and the Bay Area. He writes with an appreciation for the odd things in his brain, focusing on Sound, Structure, and Image. His book Lookbaby (BigMileBooks, 2013) deals with the absurdity and immaturity of how we look at our surroundings. He enjoys volunteering when possible in the Bay Area lit community. He is also a psychiatric nurse.
