I write things. all of the things.
I currently live in New York by way of San Francisco and later Chicago. At age 11 my first poem was published, and in high school I ran a free speech underground newspaper. I studied theater at UC Berkeley, where I founded Punch Theatre, an internationally-produced theater company for which I wrote all the texts.
Since then, I've had a variety of writing pursuits from standup comedy to a forthcoming novel. As long as I'm creating, I'm as happy as I can be.
In March of 2018 I launched Eric Barry Writes as a podcast, showcasing a new piece of writing each episode, brought to life with audio.
