academic. blogger. storyteller.

Hi! I’m Devon Ralston.

I teach writing, take photographs, and research the tension between the private and the public, particularly in online spaces and communities. I speak with a mostly Southern accent due to my Gulf Coast upbringing and nomadic wonderings. I write about my life with careless abandon and carefully placed semicolons.

I'm an Aquarius, a rebel, an ENFP, and have deep affection for a good cup of coffee.

I deeply believe that storytelling matters, that what we say and how we say it can make an impact. I tell stories to connect, to share experiences, to make sense of things happening in my own life and in the world.

This blog, like its author, is made of two parts neuroses, one part wisdom, and all parts true.
