I'm John Toothaker. I am a graduate of Salem State who resides in the North Shore. I am planning on pursuing my master's degree at Simmons College. I met Rita Dove last year and have not been the same since! I love poetry, writing, reading, watching anime, horror movies, listening to music. I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to pins and comic books! My poem "Believe The Lies" was published in Salem State's Red Skies, the campus literary magazine! I hope to have books of poetry published one day!
