His K-Doe Codas were featured in the anthology Another South: Experimental Writing in the South and in the book K-Doe: R & B Emperor of New Orleans.

Brett Evans was born and raised in Bucktown, LA and New Orleans, LA. He fractured his skull by falling off the altar during mass at St. Louis King of France, where he attended grammar school, before matriculating with the Sacred Heart brothers at Brother Martin High School, and eventually taking his first writing class with Rodger Kamenetz at Louisiana State University. He earned a Master of Science in Technical and Scientific Communication at Drexel University in Philadelphia, and now teaches as an Instructor of English on the West Bank of New Orleans.

Upcoming projects are his one-year memoir of pre-storm New Orleans, Night Flag, as well as Versus Verses and Eliot Drawn and Quartered, an erasure of the Four Quartets.
