Name: PJ Sauerteig

Bio: PJ Sauerteig is a recent graduate of Columbia University, where he pursued Creative Writing. In college, he began releasing music under the moniker, Slow Dakota; PJ also runs the boutique record label, Massif Records. This past year, he enrolled in NYU School of Law, was nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and released an album, “The Ascension of Slow Dakota.” He writes mostly about the Midwest - where he was born, and where he hopes to return.

Fun Fact: I have never learned to tie a tie. Rebellion takes many forms.

Favorite Poem or Film: “To a Stranger” by Walt Whitman. As for movies, I recently made my girlfriend watch Requiem for a Dream (one of my favorites) - a masterpiece, but not ideal for a romantic date night.
