Write-a-Thon Team: Werejellies
I'm a speculative (and other!) fiction writer who's all about hedge mazes, queer love, and found forms. My role models include Clarion superstars Carmen Maria Machado and Kelly Link as well as Aimee Bender, Steven Millhauser, and Sarah Waters. My fiction has appeared in Inch, Ninth Letter, and The Rumpus, and my favorite non-writing activities include cooking and baking, visiting bookstores, and drinking tea.

I'm going for 120 longhand pages—in the form of 4 pagaes/day, five days/week over the course of the Write-a-thon. I'm also setting an additional goal of making at least one submission a week!
I'm participating in Write-a-thon 2020 because I believe in the work Clarion does to provide opportunity & access to new voices, particularly non-white writers, queer writers, and writers without significant financial resources.
Alas, the Clarion Write-a-Thon has ended, with $11,776.70 raised so far! However, we are still accepting donations. Thank you for your support!
