About the Author
Matthew Nadelson has lived in Southern California all his life, and has recently moved to L.A. from the Inland Empire. He now has lived in every Southern California County, except for Imperial County.
Matt is an associate poetry editor for Inlandia: A Literary Journey. He has taught composition at a variety of community colleges for the past 10 years, including a private university. Since March 2013, Matt has led a free open to the public community creative writing workshop, at the Corona Public Library. The workshop is part of the Inlandia Institute’s Writing Workshop Series.
These days Matt can be found along the southern California coast in the summer, letting the waves wash his worries away, and usually somewhere warm in the winter.

Matthew Nadelson takes the long view—the rare historical considerations that place the all too sanctified details of our over-marketed contemporary life in perspective. His voice has grit and intelligence, a fierce social conscience as well as a compelling lyrical overlay. What he says has meaning that resonates far beyond the accomplished surfaces and strategies of his poems. Few poets today combine the specific and autobiographical, the elements of popular culture keenly and closely observed, into a vision that echoes the deep past with the present. A reader can find the influences of Dante and Ginsberg here, but Nadelson is an American original.
