about E.A. Midnight
I am a neurodivergent artist specializing in multi-modal, cross-genre hybridities. I prefer to allow each piece I create to perform on the page in the way it needs to, rather than adhere to traditionality within my work. I strongly believe in challenging the boxes creative bodies 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 was awarded 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. My manuscript, landscape of the interior, was longlisted for the Dzanc Books 2021 Nonfiction Prize. Please see the Creative Portfolio page for a comprehensive look at my creative work publications. Currently, I am serving as an Editor for the literary project, The Champagne Room.
If you are curious about my thoughts on writing and identity, I have an interview with The Champagne Room available to read and enjoy. Click here to read it!
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.
