[Bernard M. Cox served as the Assistant Artistic Director of the Tamale Hut Reading Series until his move to California in September 2012. We wish him well as he pursues his writing and hope he comes back to visit often!]
Bernard M. Cox is excited to be the Tamale Hut Reading Series’ Assistant Artistic Director. A recent transplant from Philly to beautiful Berwyn IL, he is now considered an invasive, though naturalized, species. In Philadelphia he taught screenwriting, ran an experimental music concert series called FeedBack, ran a staged reading series for screenwriters and was on the Board of Directors of the University City Arts League. He also performed electronic music under the moniker My Evil Twin and with the trio Herman Kresge and Cox, later called The Pet Fish Problem. Currently, he is an MFA Creative Writing student at Roosevelt University and an Intern Adjunct at the College of Lake County.
When he is not writing, making music, or reading, he is often wandering the remnant prairies of Illinois looking for insects and dreaming about Philadelphia.
