Check out Author Brian Lou on Twitch!
Brian is a graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego’s creative writing program. Books and the worlds they evoke have been a passion his whole life, and he has wanted to be a writer since the age of fourteen. Now two decades later, streaming his writing alongside others he’s found within the streaming writers community has provided him the motivation to finally pursue that dream.
Those twenty years did not pass idly by. In that time, he’s been attending regular writing workshops for practice and to keep sharp. One of those groups self-published an anthology of their work entitled “Zarf,” in which he is featured four times. Sci-fi and fantasy (or a mixture of the two) short stories are Brian’s genres of choice for his work.
He also creates poetry, typically done stream-of-consciousness. Some of his material is available through his Patreon, “The Loose Page.” Outside of writing, Brian is a board game enthusiast, avid LARPer, tabletop roleplayer, and occasional video gamer.
