Hello. I’m Brian Leli. I’m an American writer, photographer and teacher. In 2015, I published a handmade collection of some of my very short stories called Stories of Loneliness.... In 2014, I self-published a book of stories called There Were These People. In 2013, I self-published a book of photos and writings called London and a Year. I’ve done a lot of journalistic things for a bunch of different publications. I did the ones I’m most proud of for The Morning News, The New Statesman and Gapers Block. I’m from Chicago, Illinois but I live out of rented rooms everywhere. I've lived for extended periods in England, Thailand and Colombia. Right now, I'm back in Chicago. Email me.
