Nora Kipnis

New York City


I’m a recent graduate of Oberlin College, and currently work as a bookseller and event coordinator at an independent bookstore in NYC. My poetry and essays have appeared in DIAGRAM, Raw Paw, and The Southeast Review, and been mentioned in Best American Essays. I’ve reported for Al Jazeera and local newspapers.

Recently I’ve felt especially inspired by the work of James Baldwin, Diane Williams, George Saunders, and Nico Walker. I’m so grateful and excited to be a part of this workshop. I want to finish 2 stories in progress, read everyone’s work, and climb a volcano without getting burned. I’m trying to learn Spanish as fast as I can!
