Welcome

Hi, and thanks for visiting. I’m Benjamin Obler, a writer of fiction, essays, writing instruction, classroom materials in English Language Arts for grades, oh, 5-12, and finally, esoteric blog posts. I come from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I live in the Hudson Valley, NY.

Spring is springing, and the writing prompts I put up over winter are no longer new, but check them out if you haven’t yet and need a writing stimulus. I want to continue plugging the December 16, 2016, article I published in the Times of London magazine. But the freshest stuff is this photo gallery called Happy Accident, a very close look at pages and something called an incunabula.
