Originally from central Massachusetts, I now live in Tucson, AZ where I teach writing and literature at Pima Community College. I write fiction and essays, as well as literary reviews. If you’d like me to review your published (not self-published, sorry) novel, short fiction collection, or book of poems, email me at ericjamesaldrich(at)gmail(dot)com.

My work has appeared in various publications, including Hobart, The Worcester Review and Manifest West, and is forthcoming in Weber: The Contemporary West. My novella, “Please Listen Carefully as Our Options Have Changed” is forthcoming from Running Wild Press.

I review books for Heavy Feather Review, Full Stop, Terrain and others.
