It’s Christopher Arnott…

…that award-winning alt-weekly arts journalist. Been writing like fury for decades now—several million words for the New Haven Advocate alone.

Writing honors I’m most proud of: a coveted Arts award from the Arts Council of Greater New Haven in 2001 and a 2011 fellowship at the NEA Institute in Theater and Musical Theater (a USC-sponsored program which begat the Engine28 website. I’ve also won a bunch of awards from the Society of Professional Journalists and a couple each from the New England Newspaper & Press Association and the national Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.

I’ve wanted to have my own website-type thing ever since back when they were known as mimeographed newsletters.

The main site is for my random interests and some excursions into web fiction. Another area, (New Haven Theater Jerk, aka New Haven Theater Journal) is reserved for my theater writings.

I can blog (and so forth) independently now thanks to my wife Kathleen Rooney, who persevered in setting up a WordPress account when I could not.

Thanks also to Hugh Mackay and Jack Nork for inspiration and support. And to Mabel & Sally for being darling daughters.
