I’m Mary McMyne, and I write poems and stories.
My writing has appeared in over fifty literary magazines, including Gulf Coast, Redivider, Southern Humanities Review, Strange Horizons, and Apex Magazine. My debut fairy tale poetry chapbook, Wolf Skin (Dancing Girl Press, 2014), won the Elgin Chapbook Award. I have been lucky enough to win the Faulkner Prize for a Novel-in-Progress, a grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation to research my novel in Germany, and other honors.
Once upon a time, I was a student of E. L. Doctorow and Chuck Wachtel in the New York University MFA program. Now I teach creative writing at Lake Superior State University in northern Michigan, where the trees are full of ravens in spring.
