A Dutch-Israeli mixed-bag-diaspora child currently situated in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
My background is in comparative literature (Utrecht University and SUNY Binghamton), specialised in memory and landscape. If left to my own devices I will probably only write about zombies and people forced to communicate while stuck in a house together. There will be whole paragraphs devoted to the weather. I have been published in places such as The Sun Magazine, Cheap Pop Lit, Barrelhouse Magazine, Split Lip Magazine, The Offing and more. My essay, On (Not) Reading Anne Frank was listed as a notable in Best American Essays 2018. My short stories have been nominated for Best of the Net, Best Small Fictions, and the Pushcart Prize.
Also! Proud founder and member of (Dutch) feminist publishing house "Chaos." If you have any questions on what we do, why we do what we do, or you have something brilliant to pitch to us, you can contact me there at firstname.lastname@example.org
In my other incarnations I:
Lectured in Comparative Literature at Utrecht University.
Participated in a month-long writer's residency (2017) at Centre Pompadour in Ercourt, France, aka feminist castle in the middle of nowhere, France, where I worked on a collection of short stories about monsters and women. And monsterwomen.
Give storytelling workshops (contact).
Consume all of pop culture. Yep. Literally all of it. @me with your podcast recommendations, I have too many and I still want more.
