The Grapevine Art & Soul Salon

Jonathan Knott

Jonathan Knott, Host of The Grapevine's Tracking History column, also writes reviews and features. As Associate Editor, he reads material submitted to The Grapevine by other contributing writers and prospective writers. He participates in selection and editing of new pieces. Many of the photographs on the site were taken by Jonathan, whose studies include history, biology, psychology, film, and creative writing. He also graduated from Georgia Film School and took Warner Herzog’s Film Master Class online.

Jonathan has a lifelong interest in writing about history and enjoys traveling to historically interesting places, the most recent of which was a trip to Las Vegas, Nevada, that yielded three pieces for this issue of The Grapevine. In December 2015 he went to Dublin, Ireland’s UNESCO city of literature, for a writers’ conference and long looks at the historically vibrant landscape. He is a member of the Atlanta Writers' Club.

Jonathan’s study partners are, he says, distant descendants of wolves that lie on his couch and accept donations of snacks and tummy rubs in exchange for their opinions on ancient battle tactics and the origins of line-sight film editing.
