I am Aldean Hendrickson.
I was a first-grade dropout, after which I enjoyed a strange and marvelous childhood homeschooled on the prairies of western Minnesota. I am a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where I earned a B.A. in English with a minor in Philosophy.
For several years at the end of the last century I was solely responsible for a sassy little ‘zine called The Floating Egg.
I was a Finalist in the 2008 and 2009 Loft Mentor Series competitions in the Nonfiction category. In the spring of 2009 I had the pleasure to join several talented and hard-working MFA students for a semester-long Creative Nonfiction Workshop with Richard Terrill at Minnesota State, Mankato.
I currently live and work in New Ulm, Minnesota.
I am Aldean Hendrickson. I am a writer.
