Michele Zimmerman is a queer writer and MFA candidate at Sarah Lawrence College. She received her BA from the same institution in 2014. Currently she lives with her partner and their rather large orange cat. Sometimes she tries her hand at baking, but who is she kidding? She can make two types of pumpkin bread and that’s it. Her work appears or is forthcoming in PSYCHOPOMP, SEQUESTRUM, THE WESTCHESTER REVIEW, and SUGAR MULE. Two of her short stories were Top-25 Finalists for the GLIMMER TRAIN Short Story Award for New Writers.
