Kevin Winchester has published fiction and creative non-fiction in a number of journals and publications and can be found throughout the Web and in traditional print format. Some of his publishing highlights include “Waiting on Something to Happen, Winchester’s short story of love, loss, and grief, won the 2013 Thomas Wolfe Fiction Award. His forthcoming novel, Sunflower Dog, is scheduled for release in spring of 2020 by SFK Press. Main Street Press published his short story collection, Everybody’s Gotta Eat, in the summer of 2009. Other short fiction has appeared in Gulf Coast Literary and Arts Journal, Story South, Barrelhouse, Southern Hum, and the anthology Everything But the Baby. His creative non-fiction has appeared in the Novello Press anthology entitled Making Notes: Music in the Carolinas and also in Tin House Literary Magazine, The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, and Referential Magazine.
Kevin Winchester's writing reflects a strong knowledge of all the great Southern writers and storytellers who have come before him and the tradition they've established, but his voice is all his own. "Everybody's Gotta Eat" is unique, funny, heartfelt, an honest depiction of the world, his Southern world, as he sees it. His voice is one to join that long tradition of Southern writers, and rightly so.
