Hello there.


Welcome to my website.

Daniel NesterI’m Daniel Nester.

Daniel Nester’s short bio, using customary, SEO-friendly third-person language, follows:

Daniel Nester is an essayist, freelance writer, poet, writing professor, erstwhile literary journal editor, reading series curator, and Queen superfan. He is the author most recently of Shader: 99 Notes on Car Washes, Making Out in Church, Grief, and Other Unlearnable Subjects. His other books include How to Be Inappropriate, and God Save My Queen I and II, and The Incredible Sestina Anthology, which he edited. His writing has appeared in The Atlantic online, American Poetry Review, New York Times, Buzzfeed, Salon, and other places. He teaches writing at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY.

In addition to my day job as a writing professor, I am also an erstwhile literary journal editor, reading series curator, and aspiring podcaster. I’m available for readings, workshops, tutoring, freelance assignments, and editing services.

By day, I’m a husband, dad, and Queen superfan. Not necessarily in that order.

Take a look around. Check out a portfolio of my latest projects, which is a great place to start.

Check out my books, the archive of past writing, and the blog. Enjoy yourself, and drop me a line.
