Author's Bio

Andrea Witzke Slot is author of the poetry collection To find a new beauty (Gold Wake Press, 2012) and a recently-finished novel titled The Cartography of Flesh: in the silence of Ella Mendelssohn. Winner of Fiction International’s 2015 Short Short Fiction Prize and Able Muse’s 2015 Write Prize in Fiction contest, Andrea is interested in exploring the ways in which poetry, fiction, and nonfiction cross boundaries. Her work can be found in such places as Poetry East, Measure, Southeast Review, Meridian, Mid-American Review, Nimrod, and The Chronicle of Higher Education, while her academic work on Julia Alvarez and Harryette Mullen have appeared in books published by SUNY Press (2013) and Palgrave Macmillan (2014). 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. Her book-length creative work is represented by Stephanie Sinclair at Transatlantic Agency.
