Since May 15, 2012, Into the Ravenous Maw has showcased literary criticisms, flash fiction pieces, short essays on writing-related topics, and much more. The blog is controlled by Patrick Stahl. Patrick is a twenty-three-year-old writer and fledgling scholar loosely specializing in fantasy and science fiction (though he dabbles in just about every genre). In 2019, he obtained his BA from the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, triple-majoring in Creative Writing, Multimedia and Digital Culture, and French. He is currently an MA English student at WVU. Patrick spends his free time practicing on his ukulele and volunteering (and occasionally filling the pulpit) at his Sunday morning church. He loves hyphens, em-dashes, and his wife, Nicole.
