  • Robert Lowes

    I’m an independent journalist, poet, and newbie fiction writer. My poems have appeared in such journals as The New Republic, December Magazine, JAMA, the American Journal of Poetry, and Big Muddy as well as two anthologies: An Introduction to the Prose Poem, and Floodstage: An Anthology of St. Louis Poets. My first collection of poetry, titled An Honest Hunger, will be published later this year by Wipf and Stock under its Resource Publications imprint. I've scribbled in my reporter’s notebook at political rallies, baseball games, murder scenes, the US Supreme Court, 5-star restaurants, charity balls, medical conferences, and (sometimes covertly) gatherings of white nationalists. For many years, I specialized in healthcare journalism, working as a staff writer for Medscape Medical News and Medical Economics. My wife Saundra and I—and we can’t forget our cranky cat Jerry—live in University City, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis.
