Owen Abbott
While you are reading this, Owen Abbott is currently hard at work, stocking shelves at a grocery store, or assembling things in a factory, or stacking boxes in a warehouse, or being yelled at by a customer, or hiding from inept and incompetent management in a bathroom stall somewhere; or he is unemployed and between jobs. If he is employed, he is probably making minimum wage. Sometimes, he sleeps. He won a small scholarship in 2011 for his story, “Stayfree Carefree.”
