FIn Sorrel Grew up in the mountains of Oregon, near a small town called Sandy oregon. Near to the town of Portland, Oregon. He ventured to the city in search of adventure, and found a love for Freight trains, painting, and politics.
Spending most of his time outside, Fin sorrel explores the united states in search of freedom, sometimes crafting writings, and experimenting with sound, as well as video art. He is a traveler with a lust for the road and adventure. Many of the elements of his characters in stories are found in people he meets while interacting with the world around him.
For many years, Fin Struggled with homelessness, and found a deep love for the written word. In the secret places of cities, he found comfort in his journals, and in his poems, composing sometimes for many days at a time in adandoned, and condemed buildings, under bridges, on the porches of freight trains, and in hobo jungles at the outskirts of old industry towns. His work has appeared in many online and print journals around the world. Including ENCLAVE, SLEEPING FISH, BLAZE VOX, THE ANTHOLOGY OF SURREALISM, and GTK 8.
His influences stem from such voices as
Lara glenum, Lautremont, And Jeanette Winterson,
He finds his home in many different places such as New York, Louissiana, Florida and Washington. He edits the magazine MANNEQUIN HAUS with friend cassidy rios kane.
How I got my start
HOUSEFIRE books selected one of my first poems CURTAIN that was crafted inside the workshop setting in a publishing writing class I had taken a few years ago. The help of the students in that particular workshop helped me to gain experience in what can be cut out and what can stay when it comes to literature. This poem went on to have success in many other journals, and there is an excerpt from it in WRITINGS
