Ever since Brittany was gifted her first journal at the age of 5, she has been a steadfast lover of all things reading and writing. Brittany was raised in New Jersey and moved to North Carolina for undergrad, where she received her BA in Literature and Creative Writing from Elon University. While there, she also minored in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies. In December 2020, she received her MFA in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. When she’s not reading and writing, Brittany loves watching reality TV (she likes to think she specializes in NJ-based TV and movies) and cooking authentic Japanese meals. Brittany only moved to Chicago a few months ago, but is so excited to live in a city whose pizza is (almost) as legendary as her home-state’s!
