October 2010

Brooklyn, NY – \”Born in Zagreb and fluent in Croatian, I have an MFA in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College, a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning from NYU and an undergraduate degree from Barnard College. I was a contributing writer at POZ Magazine, for which I wrote book reviews, conducted interviews and wrote general interest pieces. I was managing editor of Global City Review and co-editor of its International Issue. I have published reviews, fiction and non-fiction in Global City Review, fiction in Evergreen Chronicles and XXX Fruit, and parts of my memoir are forthcoming in The Great River Review and The Reader. A chapter of this book was selected for the Dixon Place 2005 HOT! Festival in New York City. I was a guest at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Arts and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts. In 2009, I was short-listed for the X. J. Kennedy Prize in Creative Nonfiction.\”
