Rosalia Scalia

Author's Bio

I am a Baltimore-based writer who has worked on both fiction and nonfiction. My magazine and newspaper articles have appeared in local, regional, and national publications. I have worked as a staff reporter for a local weekly newspaper, The Messenger, and have written for websites including E-Diets.com. Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine; my poetry has been published in a U.S. Department of Agriculture newspaper and in a publication by the Enoch Pratt Free Library. I earned a master’s degree in writing from Johns Hopkins University in May 2003 and am working on a novel, Delia’s Concerto. The first chapter was one of seven finalists in a competition held by the National League of American Pen Women. My story, “Henry’s Fall,” was a finalist in the Gival Press Short Story competition. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Amarillo Bay; The Baltimore Review; North Atlantic Review; Pebble Lake; Pennsylvania English; The Portland Review; Quercus Review; Smile, Hon, You’re In Baltimore; South Asian Ensemble; Spout Magazine; Taproot;Oklahoma Review; Blue Lake Review; and Willow Review. The story that appears in Taproot won first prize in its annual literary fiction competition for 2007, and “Uncharted Steps” merited a 2010 Individual Artist Grant from the Maryland State Art Council. “Sister Rafaele Heals the Sick,” first published by Pebble Lake Review and nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2005, appeared again in an anthology titled City Sages: Baltimore (CityLit Press, May 1, 2010), a collection of stories by 32 Baltimore writers, including Poe, Anne Tyler, and Alice McDermott, among others. Most recently, my story, “You’ll Do Fine,” was a recipient of the Willow Review Award for the Spring 2011 issue.
