Born in Houston, Texas in 1980, Eli Hopkins has since lived in many cities and has had many terrible jobs. He now lives and writes in Portland, Oregon. In addition to the chapbooks, Telling Lies And Disappointing People, and Consider The Son, his fiction has appeared in Pathos Literary Journal, Housefire, Tup Magazine, and various other publications.



  1. I lived for a year in Portland, but simply missed New York too much … I was in the Pearl, Streetcar Lofts to be exact. I like your blog and your quirky approach to convention.

  2. Hey, I’ve nominated you for the versatile bloggers award, accepting it or not it completely your choice. Check it out,
    Hardi 🙂

    There’s a literary journal named “Pathos”. Shit; I gotta check that out.

  4. In progress

    How is your world in these moments of your life ?

  5. Nice book titles 🙂 going to read more of you!

  6. I absolutely love your books, I didn’t realize you had other work until now, and I can’t wait to read more of it. Though you may not even read these comments, I just wanted to let you know how much your books (Impulse, Crank…the ones around those books) have impacted my writing. Your books were a great escape for me, they helped me through some very rough times in my life, and helped me push myself to stay strong and channel my energy more into writing. Thank you for sharing you’r amazing talent with the world, I look forward to reading more of your work.

  7. Hi Eli, you gave me some great feedback on my last piece. The overriding theme- only leave what’s important. For that reason, I have tried to write a bit of poetry. I was hoping you could give it a read and let me know what you think.

    PS. I have been reading a bit of Larkin recently as I am sure you can tell!
