John Charles Roddy is a highly regarded poet and author among his circle of scumbag friends. The Tampa born writer began his college career in the Business Marketing program at The University of West Florida, before deciding he preferred words to numbers. He has since switched his academic focus to English and returned to his home city of Tampa. After five or six (who’s counting?) years in college, he is still convinced he’s almost finished with school. His poems and short stories have been featured in two student literary magazines, he has won one student writing award, and earned countless participation trophies. Despite being the voice of a generation, Roddy has still managed to remain humble and grounded.
