Adlai Arnold

Adlai Arnold was born in San Diego, California. He has since lived in Iowa, Minneapolis, Chicago, Santa Barbara, Portland (OR), and Greece. He says "lots of places," when people ask where he is from.

Adlai has been published twice in the Lewis & Clark College Literary Review. He, and his recently-acquired English Literature Degree from Lewis & Clark College, now work at Peet's Coffee.

Ultimately, Adlai is lazy, but he nips by on a lucky and volatile combination of abrasive wit and lovable charm. At least, that's what he likes to think.

"We each carry lines of poetry with us. Words that others have written float back to us and stay with us, indelibly. We clutch these "life lines" like totems, repeat them as mantras, and summon them for comfort and laughter."

-Academy of American Poets
