Author site, place for the blog

Matt Maday is a writer and performer from Colorado. He has a degree in psychology from Fort Lewis College and a degree in English from UNCO. His mission is to use art to repurpose economic systems as humanitarian systems.

All art, including written work, visual art, and audio and visual recordings, is my original work.

Advertisements are controlled through companies independent from me and do not necessarily reflect anything other than the advertising interests and strategies of those independent companies and my agreement to let them advertise on my site as a way to generate revenue.


  • October 12, 2021: My first try with self-publishing didn’t work out very well, so now I’m going to try Amazon for distributing my self-published digital chapbook, Typographical Imperative. Should be ready by the end of January 2022.
  • March 7, 2021: I’m reposting my four-part blog series “Politics of a Punk Rock Poser” to prepare for my first music review tomorrow. This repost consolidates the series into one part instead of four. To get to this blog entry, you can click on the “Metablog” header or this link: Metablog – Matt Maday

Blog Index

It seems like the easiest way to navigate the Blog Index–as of now–is to keep clicking the link back to the homepage after reading each entry, then click the link for the next entry in line. There has to be a better way. I’ll have to work on that.
