Calvin Beam writes fantasy stories from his home in Chattanooga, with the goal of making readers laugh. He has been published in the short story collections Crazy Buffet 1 through 4 and before that he worked as a sportswriter at a number of newspapers, some of which no longer exist (not his fault). He serves on the board of the Chattanooga Writers Guild.
Calvin is a preliminary judge in fiction this year. Thank you for helping to make our contest a success, Calvin!
