Jack Michaelson is a master’s student in Catholic theology in Boston, MA, originally from Missouri. He received his BA in Public Policy, Sociology, and Theology. He has been writing poetry since discovering the medium in early 2012 after a trifecta of a summer in Nicaragua being inspired by the tenacity of those committed to the Kingdom of God, the vulnerability that accompanies a sudden diagnosis and treatment of cancer at age 22, and the grace and beauty of his blessed muse and editor, Eleanor. Jack loves his family and friends dearly, because even when they lose patience with him, it means that they had patience with him in the first place. He would imagine this to be incredibly difficult.
