Published Hanson ‘14
My first full calendar year in New York, the Big Apple, Broadway, baby! Here are the pieces I had published this year that still please me, that still tickle my pridebone even if just a bit.
An essay on what a hometown means to me, during the holidays, as I was raised in a military family who moved frequently.
A humor piece about mental illnesses derived from living in New York for The Hairpin, illustrated by the outrageously talented Hallie Bateman.
Also for The Hairpin, jokes about sad, straight dudes texting.
On living in Germany with a new stepmother and a father at war, for The Toast.
For Impose, and technically on the last day of 2013, I got to write about one of my favorite bands, one of my favorite EPs, and how spectacular of a cap those songs were on their short career. Luckily, less than a year later, I’d be seeing them at Barclays, jaw dropped, bricks in my diaper.
Thank every last one of you. If you’d like to get in touch for any reason, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more weird shorts on my Medium, and I try to update alan-hanson.com with clips as necessary.
(Oh I write poetry, too, and here are some of my favorites from this year)
