writers of the strange and unusual, welcome!

My name is David Fey and I have over a decade of professional writing and editorial experience, with a heavy focus on speculative and horror prose, poetry, and verse novels, flash fiction, and alternative styles of story-telling.

I’ve contributed both written and visual content to a variety of websites, performed my original prose and poetry on stages across the United States, and worked with artists of all ages and disciplines with the shared goal of expressing story through different mediums. I’m also a performing singer/songwriter, an amateur photographer, and graphic artist.

No matter where your writing passions lie, be it with stories written in verse, graphic novels, or traditionally structured narratives, especially if the macabre and left-of-the-dial is where your frequency lies, I would be thrilled to work with you.

I hold an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and BA in Religious Studies from Siena College.


“David’s comments were exactly what I needed and I have so many ideas how I can continue exploring and building the world of my novel.” – Jamie Evans, YA Writer and Graduate Student

“After only reading a third of David’s notes I already knew exactly what my manuscript needed, and after reading all of them I was brimming with enthusiasm to make it happen. His analysis has fully equipped me for the adventure ahead.” – Stephen Finn, Science Fiction Writer

David’s edit notes were clear, concise and of immense help with my first draft. I look forward to working with him again!” – Gloriya Gostyaeva, Fantasy Writer
