About June

About June

My novel, Jobs for Girls with Artistic Flair, is forthcoming from Pamela Dorman Books (Viking/Penguin Random House) in June 2022.

My essays and stories have appeared in SojournersThe Common, Big Fiction, The Missouri Review, The Southampton Review, Image Journal, Consequence Magazine, Cordella, and elsewhere.

I grew up in the Shirley/Mastic/Yaphank area of Long Island and studied at Bennington College in Vermont, where I graduated with my MFA in Writing and Literature in 2012. Alongside writing, I have worked as a full-time activist/organizer; a freelance graphic designer, writer, and editor; and Arts Director at a not-for-profit. I also do public speaking and teaching, write book reviews, and occasionally make a little music.
