Drawing inspiration from the sage and cedar infused air of New Mexico, Margaret Hedderman is known as the “outdoorsy Urchin.” Whether it’s whittling a pencil with a Swiss Army Knife or jotting down notes under a Cottonwood, Margaret’s writings are influenced by simple things: wind in the leaves, coyotes yapping at night, snow in the morning.
Born a city girl on the South Side of Chicago, Sarah Jost studied and lived in Los Angeles and London before taking her Urchinism to the wilds of Vermont. A Plath-identifying, Woolf-idolising postmodern future children’s book author, Sarah hopes to make art and integrity mainstream values. She is a poet, activist, editor, joymonger, and a proud co-founder of the Urchin Movement.
When the Urchin Movement goes down in history, Geo Ong will be remembered as the one with the black hair who loved James Joyce. His time in Los Angeles will be marked by days surrounded by books. His first novel will reflect, more so than anything else, the restlessness of the cities he has inhabited and will be regarded, hopefully, as a sincere attempt, though not his best. His Urchinism is what clinical psychologists would call ‘Class Five.’ We’d suspect so, otherwise he’d be the worst Urchin co-founder ever.
