Josh Hurst, Senior Writer and Editor
With a writing style that conveys a stone-faced gravitas and an authorial voice that cries out from unfathomable depths of mystery and intrigue, Josh Hurst has been called the Bruce Springsteen of the literary consultancy world – or, at the very least, a poor man’s Bob Seger. He joined the Grammar Chic team as a Writer and Editor in 2011, and while he relishes every minute of it, he’d rather you not refer to him as a “grammar chick.”
A regular film and music critic for Christianity Today and a staff reviewer for the rock and roll revue Stereo Subversion, Josh has also been published in Image and Relevant. He’s something of a geek when it comes to pop music and film criticism, but his literary interests also encompass the poetry of the modernists, the short stories of Flannery O’Connor and basically anything to come out of the Harlem Renaissance. He also loves Kurt Vonnegut and T.S. Eliot, but thinks Walt Whitman is sorely overrated and wouldn’t read another James Joyce novel for all the curry in London.
