Colin St John


Colin St. John is a writer, editor and joke maker.

He's written for Rolling StoneDeadspinEsquirePitchfork, the St. John family email chain and other outlets.

Colin likes some specific things (chicken sandwiches, Richard Linklater movies) and dislikes others (sliced tomatoes, guns).

When he's not writing the bio for his own website in the third person, he's also been known to totally sell out and write advertisements.

Sometimes I write the words for ads. Here are a few.

The Real Dill: pun-friendly pickles.

This company called Nike makes shoes. Check 'em out for your next pair!

Snap into a Duke's.
