About Me

My Photo
Originally from Vermont, I now live in North Carolina. My work can be found in recent issues of REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters, The Jabberwock Review, The Emerson Review, Storyglossia, The MacGuffin, Confrontation, Passages North, SmokeLong Quarterly, elimae, wigleaf, Pank, and Gargoyle #57, among others. One of my stories has been translated into Farsi by Asadollah Amraee, and many others by Jalil Jafari, two of which have been published in the Iranian journal, Golestaneh Magazine. Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. I'm also working on two novels and a short story collection. In 2011, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.

And Speaking of Alicia Gifford...

Kelly Spitzer has another fine interview on her blog, this time with Alicia.

While you're there, scroll through her past interviews with writers. Kelly has an amazing knack for interviewing.

SmokeLong Quarterly

The newest issue, guest-edited by Alicia Gifford is LIVE!

And as our amazing guest editor says in her interview, "If a short story is a dish to linger over, flash is like popping a scrumptious chocolate in your mouth."

Please indulge.
