Tracy Mishkin is a career immigrant. Born in academia, she taught at Georgia College & State University and published two books on African-American literature, then disappeared, resurfacing briefly at Butler University before she came ashore in the land of non-profits with the Bureau of Jewish Education in Indianapolis. Three years later, she was spotted across the border working retail at the Uniform House, before she immigrated to the corporate world, where she resolves insurance problems at Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. She is an MFA student in Creative Writing at Butler University. Her chapbook, I Almost Didn’t Make It to McDonald’s, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2014.
