Hi, thanks for visiting, and welcome to my site. I’m Benjamin Obler, a writer of fiction, narrative nonfiction, writing instruction, K-12 Reading passages (fiction, informational, drama, poetry, how-to, you name it) and finally, esoteric blog posts. I come from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I live in the Hudson Valley, NY.

Enjoy perusing my site for information about my projects, samples of my stories and instruction, excepts from works in progress, and to contact me.

The new content here are the Prompt City and Very Short Writing Advice sections, as well as this link to a December 16 article I published in the Times of London magazine. For a PDF of the article that you can reading offline, look for a sidebar at the page about my memoir project, Life in Blue.
