Jeff Harder

In sixth grade, I wrote an essay for English class that received a grade of "NS: Not Score-able." My train of thought followed no discernible track, and my penmanship was awful. 

All these years later, after having written for a variety of magazines, newspapers, and websites, I'd like to think I can tell a good, clear story once in a while. Still, good luck deciphering what I scribble in my notebook.
