Assistant Managing Editor

Taylor Kirby (@taykir) is a fiction writer and essayist who can’t point to one place as home, but her options include Denver, Colorado, St. Petersburg, Florida, and (most recently) San Marcos, Texas. Her prose appears or is forthcoming in Longleaf Review, Pithead Chapel, Jellyfish Review, Atticus Review, and more.

What she’s looking for: Lyric prose; sentences so compressed they each contain their own story; nonlinear writing that bleeds from its fractures.

Writers she admires: Carmen Maria Machado, Amelia Grey, Amy Hempel, Karen Russell, Kiese Laymon, R.O. Kwon
