Dale Corvino found his confessional voice performing at “Dean Johnson’s Reading for Filth,” recounting his youthful experiences as a kept boy. For two years, he blogged advice for rentboy.com under a pseudonym. The site has since been shut down by Federal authorities. He has contributed to several issues of Prose & Lore, and to the anthology Johns, Marks, Tricks and Chickenhawks from Soft Skull Press. An illustrated chapbook, Dominick Reading for Filth, is available online. Under his government name, he’s published an account of his family's relationship to Marilyn Monroe in Salon, an appreciation of Blondie in ImageOutWrite, and the short story “More Sequins than Cloth” in the Sibling Rivalry Press journal Jonathan. He is the 2015 recipient of A&U Magazine’s Christopher Hewitt Award for Fiction, for the story “Drowned River.” Dale lives in Hell’s Kitchen.
