Creative Nonfiction in The Pinch, Issue 37.1

My story “Anatomy of an Education” is out in The Pinch Journal, Issue 37.1.

The Pinch is an award-winning and internationally recognized literary journal published biannually by the University of Memphis. Founded in 1980 under the name Memphis State Review, the journal’s name was changed to River City in 1988, and in 2005 it transitioned into The Pinch Journal (named for the historic Memphis ‘Pinchgut’ District) and expanded its focus on creative nonfiction. You can read more about it’s history here. I’m thrilled to be in a literary journal that has published the likes of Margaret Atwood, Philip Levine, Mary Oliver, Donald Justice, Adrienne Rich, Mary Gaitskill, John Updike and Roxane Gay.

I drafted “Anatomy of an Education” in 2010, during my first year in nursing school and my partner’s first year in medical school. At this time, “Anatomy of an Education” can be read in print. Issue 37.1 can be ordered here.
