Jim Hodgson started writing in the mid 90s, after high school. When his adoptive mother passed in 2006, he turned to his writing as a means of coping with her loss. From there it became an invaluable part of his life.
He’s the founder and editor of The Atlanta Banana, a satirical newspaper. He’s worked as a standup comic and as a sketch writer for Sketchworks. His work has been published in Georgia Music Magazine, Creative Loafing, Cacti Fur, and Dirge Magazine.
His outdoor and travel writing includes the mountaineering book How To Mount Aconcagua, regular contributions to singletracks.com and tripleblaze.com, and articles for The Art of Manliness, nerdfitness.com, Georgia.org and others.
