About Author and This Site

The Go Cup is a collection of stories, photos, and observations by author Rich Barnett.

Raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of NC and Virginia, Rich shuttles between his work for an environmental think tank in Washington DC and his life as a writer in Rehoboth. He pens the popular “Camp Stories” column in LETTERS from Camp Rehoboth (a free monthly magazine with a circulation of about 7,000).  2016 marked his tenth anniversary as a columnist.

His latest work “Fun with Dick and James” came out in late June 2016 from Cat and Mouse Press.  It’s a comedy about a gay couple and a wacky ensemble of friends set in Rehoboth Beach, sort of a Wooster and Jeeves meets Tales of the City.  His 2012 book The Discreet Charms of a Bourgeois Beach Town: Rehoboth Beach Stories  is a compilation of his favorite columns.  Together, they paint a humorous and slightly satiric portrait of Rehoboth Beach.  Other work has appeared in:  Beach Nights; Delaware Beach Life; Revealing Rehoboth; An Insider’s Guide; Brevity Blog; Shore Life Magazine; Saints and Sinners: New Fiction from the Festival 2014 and 2016; The Beach House: Rehoboth Beach Reads; and No Place Like Here: An Anthology of Southern Delaware Poetry and Prose.  He has been recognized  by the Delaware Press Association for his writing, photography, and blogging.

He always has a go cup handy.  Red, of course.
