Craig Hart is a writer, editor, and publisher. His prose and poetry have been published both traditionally and independently. His love of language goes back to the day he learned to read. He read voraciously as a child, edited the high school journal, and wrote short stories during his teen years. At college he edited the campus newspaper. Once out of college, he began a popular online book review service. In 2007, he withdrew from reviewing to focus his attention on writing. Early in 2012 he founded The Rusty Nail literary magazine for which he serves as editor-in-chief. He is also the publisher for Sweatshoppe Publications. Hart is a member of the American Society of Authors and Writers and the Rockford Writer’s Guild. He lives in Rockford, Illinois with his wife Kimberly in a house owned by their cat, Gracie.
