Pete Armetta is an emerging writer of Flash Fiction, Poetry, Short Stories and Essays. With a style that’s broad and accessible, his poetry and stories fend off conventionality. He’s not easy to pigeonhole.
And doesn’t wanna be.
Pete’s a native New Yorker living in Charlottesville, VA, via too many other places to count. It’s a life of big sky and mountains and dogwoods and hawks. Of back roads and wood-burning stoves. It’s mint from the garden with bourbon in spring and swimming in the river in summer. Currently applying for fellowships and residencies, Pete writes full-time, shedding his former button-down existence to fully embrace his craft.
You only live once right?
Pete’s work has been published or is upcoming in Zest Literary Journal, Gadfly Magazine, The River Journal, Expats Poetry, Take It To The Street Poetry, Subtle Fiction, Best New Poems, Cynic Magazine, Blue Lake Review, Stone Path Review and Inclement Magazine. His short stories have been regularly featured in The Piker Press. Pete’s first poetry chapbook, New Future was published by Lost & Found Press in 2012 and is free for the taking.
