About

Welcome! My name is Chris Wermeskerch and I love reading, writing, Star Wars, theology, memes, and craft beer. (Which yeah, I understand, doesn’t make me all that unique.) I am a full time grad student, working toward earning a Master of Divinity. I graduated Iowa State with degrees in Religious Studies and Women and Gender Studies with a minor in Philosophy. I work at a publisher on their sales team. I am also an intern at my church, serving in adult ministries and Bible studies.

Find below the different websites I have written for, including links to each individual article.

Right now, I write regularly here on this site, and for two Star Wars websites. The first, Mynock Manor, is a wonderful site devoted to reviewing all things Star Wars. Come for weekly comic reviews, and reviews of movies and novels. Every other week, join me for the Legendary Adventures series, wherein I read the Star Wars Legends novels in canonical order to explore new connections, stories, and themes.

Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide

I have also written for Porgology, a wonderful website exploring the biological and zoological elements of the galaxy far, far away! I am specifically looking at the way in which Star Wars creatures are inspired by creatures in our myths.

Porgology: 

-Ecofeminism and Rogue One

-Tales from the GFFA: The Phantom Menace

Tales from the GFFA: Attack of the Clones 

-Zoos in the GFFA

The following are guest articles that I have written for other websites. These sporadic articles usually come from a fit of inspiration, but aren’t from a place of regular contributions for a lot of reasons.
