Andrea Witzke Slot

Author's Bio

Winner of Fiction International’s 2015 Short Short Fiction Prize, Andrea Witzke Slot is a novelist, poet, and essayist. She is author of the poetry collection To find a new beauty (Gold Wake Press, 2012), and her work has (or will soon) appear in such places as The Adirondack Review, Fiction International, Bellevue Literary Review, Fiction Southeast, Mid-American Review, Nimrod, SRPR, Mezzo Cammin, Measure, Southeast Review, and The Chronicle of Higher Education, while her academic work on poetry and social change has been included in books published by SUNY Press (2013) and Palgrave Macmillan (2014). Her novel manuscript The Cartography of Flesh: in the silence of Ella Mendelssohn was recently one of two finalists in AROHO’s Clarissa Dalloway book prize, while her second poetry collection Between my Country and the Others was a finalist in Black Lawrence Press's Hudson Prize. Although she is at work on a second novel and a short story collection, new poems and mixed-genre pieces continue to make daily appearances at her desk. After many years of teaching at various levels (from primary school in the UK to college/university level in the US), Andrea now writes full time and lives between London and Chicago.
