Hi! I'm Lucy, and I write fiction. Though raised in the suburbs of New Jersey, I have spent most of the past ten years in New York City and Shanghai. My stories explore these and other spaces, with special focus on characters who have a shifting sense of what they call "home."
I recently earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and my first novel, WHAT WE WERE PROMISED, is forthcoming from Little, Brown (Hachette Book Group) in July 2018. Stories have appeared in journals such as Asia Literary Review, Sixfold, and Ploughshares, where I was fiction winner of the 2015 Emerging Writer's Contest.
I am currently based in NYC and would love to connect on all things literary + theatrical. I'm also looking for the right volunteer opportunity--one that accommodates the possibility of working remotely, as my travel/work schedule is unpredictable. I'm especially interested in organizations that support underprivileged students, at-risk youth, underrepreseted voices, and senior citizens. If you know of any, please give me a shout on my contact page.
