Raphael Luckom is a poet/writer/genial misanthrope living in Somerville. He graduated Emerson College in 2008 with a thesis collection of short stories titled “What Not To Do With a Suburban Childhood.” He was a member of the first Worcester Youth Slam Team. The pieces he is currently prepared to admit to writing are online at inferredno.blogspot.com. His recent accomplishments include replacing a social media addiction with an addiction to MIT’s OpenCourseWare, the continuance of his 24-year-long “being continuously alive” streak, and the successful assembly of an optimistic outlook that gets him out of bed 60% of the time without the assistance of weapons-grade bullshit. He works at an appraisal company and is a fan of facts, animals, and good informational graphics. His work has appeared in Gauge Magazine (Emerson) and the South Boston Literary Gazette.
