Joel James Davis

English Teacher/ Mentor

Joel has a BA and MA in English/Creative Writing from Binghamton University in upstate New York. For over 15 years he has tutored English and writing to all grade levels from middle school to PhD. Joel has been a fiction editor for several literary journals, and his own biggest writing thrill was when he was published in a poetry journal alongside the late Beat Generation poet Diane di Prima. He moved to the South Bay in 2016 but still misses shoveling snow and playing pond hockey. When he’s not watching the latest TV pilot, Joel’s writing or pitching a comedy pilot of his own. He loves to read Raymond Carver and cook with butter, but seldom at the same time.
