Poet. Speaker. Marketing & Media Consultant.
Hi, I’m Daniel Wallock. I’m a college student living in New York and the author of three books. I was born with 7 life-threatening heart conditions and over the past few years I have taken to writing nonfiction to tell my unique story. My books have been downloaded 15,000 times across 25 countries. My poetry and prose have appeared in 20 publications including Burningword, Wild Quarterly, ExFic, The Vending Machine Press, Agave Magazine, VAYAVYA Poetry, Whistling Shade Journal, and The Bolt Magazine. I have received numerous writing awards including 1st place in San Jose State University’s Nonfiction Short Story Contest. I worked as Manager of Marketing at Ginosko Literary Journal and I founded This Very Breath Journal and the Hello Distance Poetry Blog. In addition to pursing a literary career I spend my time speaking for nonprofit organizations, doing marketing and media consulting, and designing websites. I recently got the chance to present the keynote speech for Sky’s The Limit Fund, a national nonprofit, helping to raise $140,000.
