Adrianna McCollum, winner of the Wisconsin Writers Association Jade Ring Nonfiction Award for “Mormon Girl and the Styrofoam Harem,” will read from and discuss her work.
Adrianna’s nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, appears in The Bark, A Year In Ink: Volume 15, Wisconsin Writers Anthology 2022, and Creative Wisconsin Magazine. She was recently featured in her hometown paper, the Oregon Observer.
Her nonfiction mostly recounts her experiences coming-of-age as a motherless girl in Salt Lake City in the 1980s, while her poetry touches on themes of nature, identity, and motherhood.
She is working on final revisions of a middle-grade portal fantasy novel called The Palimpsest. She was inspired to write in the fantasy genre after having an inexplicable experience while attending graduate school at Oxford. She is certain this is why so many of the world’s best fantasy writers come from Oxford, like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, and Philip Pullman.
