Fredric Nord is a writer and photographer living in Karlstad, Sweden. He enjoys basic forms of magic – things like watching dogs run as fast as they can, the potential of charcoal on paper or the alchemy of a single violin emanating out of silence. His work has appeared in Phases Magazine, Phosmag, Mutantspace, Burning House Press and in print via Antler Press. Fredric is currently writing at length about vision as silence or poetry, and how it may be utilised as an act of love.
