about E.A. Midnight
I am a multi-modal artist, specializing in cross-genre hybridities. I prefer to allow each piece I write/create to perform on the page in the way it needs to, rather than adhere to traditionality within my work. As a person living with mental difference, I am a vocal advocate for challenging the boxes creative artists are put in.
While I began my higher-educational endeavors focusing on creative writing at Warren Wilson College, I eventually changed majors [and schools] and received my Bachelor of Arts degree in the field of Sociology from SUNY Binghamton University in 2008. Over the years I have worked in many varied career fields, including Government Data Collection and Research, Physical Fitness and Sports Management, and Information Technologies. In 2017, I decided to pursue creative writing on an academic level once again, and received the Goddard/PEN North American Scholarship Award to attend Goddard College's prestigious MFA program. I received my Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing, with a focus on Hybrid Writing, Memoir, and Poetry, from Goddard College in 2019. Please see the Creative Portfolio page for a comprehensive look at my creative work publications.
On a personal note, I reside between the prairie wilds and the mountain winds of Colorado with my beloved dogs and my cherished family. I spend my free time reading, wandering around with my camera, running mountain trails, and rock climbing.
