I’m Jessie Roy, a queer fiction writer, teacher, and scholar.
I hold an MFA in Fiction from Syracuse University and am currently pursuing a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I’m also Fiction Editor for the literary magazine Cream City Review. My work appears most recently in American Literary Review.
When I’m not writing, you can find me designing and sewing my own clothes, cooking from historical recipes, and collecting women’s magazines from the 1930s and 1940s.

You can find my Pinterest, where I archive midcentury fashion photographs and sewing patterns, at pinterest.com/ihavemade.
You can read my blog, Homemakers’ Chat, where I collect and comment on women’s print culture, advertising, and ephemera, at HomemakersChat.Tumblr.com.
