Josh Green writes freelance magazine and newspaper stories, long and short fiction, and edits a popular news blog in his adopted home city of Atlanta, Ga.    

His work has appeared in publications such as Atlanta magazine, Indianapolis Monthly, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Los Angeles Review, The Baltimore Review, Ascent, The MacGuffin, The Indianapolis Star, and Creative Loafing (Atlanta). Since 2003, his newspaper writing has won numerous statewide awards in Indiana and Georgia — including top prizes in 2010 (feature writing) and 2012 (investigative reporting) among all major Georgia newspapers.  

His first book, Dirtyville Rhapsodies, was published by Parkgate Press in May 2013. Men's Health magazine heralded the short story collection as a "Best Book for the Beach" alongside Dan Brown and Stephen King. Later, Atlanta magazine named it a Top 10 Book of 2013. Declared Paste Magazine, "This fine book belongs on the shelf with any other (short story) collection published in recent years."
