Thomas D. Clarke's Writing Portfolio Menu

Last Updated January 4, 2017


This section features some writings from the Brooklyn College Excelsior (where I wrote from 1997-1999) and Brooklyn News Service (BC's Journalism Program) submissions that I've managed to upload onto my webpage, as well as some of my fiction writings, songwriting lyrics (from what few songs I've produced that actually have lyrics), and other newspaper and blog submissions. I may post some more of my submissions from a certain Manhattan writing group whenever they get published.
