Paul has been writing professionally since 2004, and in that time has contributed to magazines, newspapers, books, blogs, films and other videos, and even a podcast.  His experience also includes working as a professional English and writing tutor and a film instructor.

He earned his BA in English from SUNY College at Fredonia where his studies focused on Arthurian literature as well as poetry (the language of “less is more”), and continually hones his craft.

Because of his background in stunt work, Paul is also uniquely capable of writing action and physical comedy, especially for film.

Twombly McGreen vs. The Mean Steam Machine (2004)AuthorInkwater PressBook (Anthology)

In his debut, Paul Nandzik exhibits the beauty and wonder of the poetic form in his intricately woven verses. He shows the tapestry of the human experience of growth and discovery, love and friendship, through various speakers and characters-some named, some unnamed-some who exist in a dark aged fantasy world, some who exist in modern times. By combining the ancient epic form along with romantic themes, Nandzik has found a seductive blend of sonic and visual beauty with spiritual and emotional depth.
