Maxime Berclaz is an M.F.A student studying Poetry. He is a Swiss citizen who grew up in Indiana and Ohio, and spent the last two years teaching English in Japan. He graduated from Oberlin College after majoring in Creative Writing and Cinema Studies. At the moment he is interested in writing that unsettles and expresses the awe implicit in fear. Outside of poetry he enjoys and draws from early silent and horror films and their intersection, along with the fiction that falls under the sign of the weird. He speaks English, French, and a little Japanese.
