Liam Julian is a writer in New York City. He started The Mighty Pen in October 2014 and writes for it in his free time—that is, when he’s not engaged appearing wistful in black-and-white photos. Liam also trains in improv and sketch comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade. His articles have appeared in many outlets besides The Mighty Pen, ranging from the Los Angeles Review of Books to Commentary to McSweeney’s Internet Tendency to the Washington Post, but all writing on The Mighty Pen has been published only on The Mighty Pen.
