Born in the woods of Maine, Sarah Perry has been fortunate enough to spend half her life in the South. She is currently a second-year MFA student at Columbia University, where she writes nonfiction and works for the program's literary journal. She is also at work on a memoir, which means, of course, that her life is slowly being ruined by the process of writing about it.

His writing has been featured in Underground Voices, Shelf Life, Promethean, and was shortlisted for Matrix Magazine's 2010 LitPop Awards.
