P. J. Piccirillo holds a B.A. in English literature from St. Francis University and an M.F.A. in creative writing from the University of Southern Maine. He returned to fiction after ten years in marketing communications, writing advertising, promotional, news, and technical copy. His stories and articles have appeared in journals, newspapers, magazines, and as syndicated releases and have won several literary prizes. He recently had his first novel, Heartwood, published by Middleton Books. P. J. also conducts programs for the Pennsylvania Humanities Council at rural libraries, promoting the value of literary art for cultural and personal insights. His residencies, which help participants discover ways of writing stories that work best for them, are rooted in rediscovering why we write fiction and in uncovering some of the infinite places from where stories can come. He helps the writers create their fictional worlds by building outward, in steps, from simple core ideas they express in story statements.
