David Klugman is a graduate of the Johns Hopkins Writing Program, and has been a practicing psychotherapist for the past 25 years. David also paints, and while he doesn’t consider himself a “real” painter, he enjoys blending poems and images for reciprocal effect. It is a thing he calls a “poempic.” Luckily for him there are a few online zines that are into this kind of exploration – for which he is grateful indeed! In addition to his creative writing, David also writes and (sometimes) publishes nonfiction articles and books about psychology and psychoanalysis. Some links to his recent creative works are: http://www.blackfoxlitmag.com/back-issues/, http://www.blackfoxlitmag.com/current-issue/, http://emptysinkpublishing.com/archives/issue-9/prison-forgotten-dreams/, https://postcardpoemsandprose.wordpress.com/page/2/, http://www.foliateoak.com/david-klugman.html, http://issuu.com/crackthespine/docs/issue_142/22. David also has three new poempics that will be published one at a time in the next three issues of Empty Sink. In fact, the first one of these is already out and can be viewed at http://emptysinkpublishing.com/visual/on-the-other-side-of-fear/. David works in Nyack, NY, and lives nearby with his wife and daughter.
