– Bruce Kramer is a writer from South Jersey. Most of his work has appeared in boring technical documents and marketing propaganda, but he has also had more engaging work published in the Fox Chase Review, Barrelhouse, the Iconoclast, Hell’s Kitchen, and the Cavalcade of Poetry. Several years ago, Bruce serendipitously found himself as Managing Editor for Lap Dance magazine for one issue. While he doesn’t mention it on his resume, he keeps a framed copy of the masthead in his office at home.
