Aarik Danielsen is a Midwestern journalist, essayist and poet whose writing exists at the four corners of literature, human dignity, pop culture and theology. Rejecting the title "content" creator (however you pronounce it), he hopes to create meaningful dispatches from a place of holy discontent.
Aarik has covered the arts for more than a decade at the Columbia Daily Tribune. His bylines have appeared at Image Journal, Plough, Rain Taxi, Entropy, Think Christian, Christ and Pop Culture, Sojourners, Mockingbird, EcoTheo Review, The Englewood Review of Books, The New Territory, The Blue Mountain Review, The Curator, Ekstasis and more.
Aarik also teaches at his alma mater, the University of Missouri. He lives in Columbia, Missouri with his wife and son.
