Ben Langston

Ben Langston, besides being a jailcop, has been a truck-loader, a forklift-driver, a paratrooper, an event-parker, a caterer, a patient-transporter, a capacitor-shaker, a bottle-labeler, and a short-order-cooker. Currently he teaches junior high for high-risk teens (trauma-afflicted kids who only communicate through violence). He’s published in Cactus Heart, New Letters, Storm Cellar, Matter Journal, The Gettysburg Review, Fourth Genre, and is forthcoming in Shards II (another jail essay is being illustrated comic-book style for this graphic literary journal).
