I’m Jessie Roy, a queer fiction writer, teacher, and editor.
I hold an MFA in Fiction from Syracuse University and a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I was a Distinguished Dissertation Fellow. I’m a former Fiction Editor for the literary magazine Cream City Review. My short fiction has recently appeared in American Literary Review and The Journal, and my novel manuscript, Brides, was honored as First Runner-Up in the 2020 James Jones First Novel Fellowship.
When I’m not writing, you can find me designing and sewing my own clothes.
