Brandon Getz was born and raised outside Pittsburgh, PA. In 2010, he earned an MFA in Fiction Writing from Eastern Washington University (Spokane, WA), where he was a fiction editor for Willow Springs literary magazine and taught creative writing to at-risk and homeless youth.
Since 2011, his writing has been published in more than twenty venues, including F(r)iction, Versal, and Burrow Press Review. His debut novel, Lars Breaxface: Werewolf in Space (SpaceBoy Books, 2019), took his fiction in a new direction: embracing genre tropes and cranking the irreverence up to 11. His story collection, Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before (Six Gallery Press, 2022), showcases 12 tales of the literary weird, collecting his best work, published and unpublished, from his first decade as a writer.
Brandon lives in Pittsburgh with his partner, son, and dog, and works as a professional copy editor.
