It is the charge of the blogger, I am told, to demonstrate authority and expertise related to the subjects about which we write. Not so sure I can do this. Am I an expert on anything? Maybe, but not everyone will agree. I am a jack of all trades and a master of none, but I will not be ashamed to hear, expose and appropriate the expertise of others in my quest to seem like a wise guy.  To know what is really behind this blog, check out the first installment, “Stop Him Before He Writes (Or at least Tries).”

If you are reading this, it is likely that you are one of the people or know one of the people or are somehow connected by less than six degrees of separation from one of the “experts.”

Clarence White is a  writer, editor and publicist living in Saint Paul. He is a master of the personal letter and too many e-mails for which “send” has been hit with too much haste. He has worked as a writer for the National Farmers Union in Washington, D.C., the international organization Nonviolent Peaceforce, and several Twin Cities nonprofits.

He is a 2011–2012 Givens Foundation for African American Literature Retreat Fellow and was a finalist for miniStories flash fiction competition in 2008. He is the primary author of The Clarence White Blog  and is a veteran of the Central Minnesota Writers’ Workshop.
His work has been exhibited and performed in many places, including Art on Foot outdoor exhibit and walking audio tour at Silverwood Park in St. Anthony, Minnesota in 2013 and the fourth biennial exhibit, “superusted” at the Soap Factory in 2015.   His work is featured in the recently published several editions of the annual publication Saint Paul Almanac, in the landmark publication Blues Vision: African American Writing from Minnesota and has appeared in other publications in the past 25 years.  He is former bookseller at the Hungry Mind Bookstore. He has an MBA, which gets used less frequently than his writing and the love of baseball he shares with his son.

    Clarence, hello! It has been many years, but I want to reconnect with you. John Rosengren suggested I contact you to get some blogging advice (just learned I’m using the wrong tool) and invite you to participate in my 365 Days of Networking project. You are my contact for today Clarence — Day #53. Will you send me your email so I can send a note with more details?
    Thanks Clarence!
