Lit Crawl LA has ended

Carl Peel

Carl Peel grew up playing in bands all over the Los Angeles area. He graduated with a B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) then began a career as a journalist. He quickly found he gets more fiction writing done when not writing for a living. So he has developed a career in music and today heads up the music production / A&R department of Universal Production Music. His fiction has been in only the most obscure journals, and has been performed in LA’s Short Fiction Series. He was awarded Emerging Voices and The Mark fellowships from PEN America, as well as a residency fellowship at Ragdale. He loves to learn languages (Spanish, Italian, French, Irish, Swedish) which his wife tells him is simply a writing avoidance technique.
