Zachary C Jensen is a writer, editor, sometimes translator, and educator based in Los Angeles, California. He is the founding and managing editor of the literary journal Angel City Review as well as the editor of the animals chapbook series under the moniker Business Bear Press. His writing covers the gamut of poetry and prose, music and art journalism, essay, as well as academic writing. He teaches English composition, literature, and creative writing at various community college campuses around Los Angeles. When not teaching or writing you can find him at a concert, riding his motorcycle, or spending time with his dog Francis.

His creative writing often focuses on the varying forms that solitude (both voluntary and otherwise) and loss can take in one’s life. His work seeks to examine both the pain as well as well as the beauty that can come from the moments there is no one around you, those quiet moments in between all the other living that we do.
