Great news for Kimberly Elkins (2010): Kimberly was a teaching fellow this summer at both the Wesleyan Writers Conference and at the Sewanee Writers Conference. Also, her story “Boys with Wings” has just been published in Slice Magazine, in an issue featuring Rick Moody and Francine Prose. Kimberly recently read this story at a Slice event in New York.
Kimberly’s debut novel, WHAT IS VISIBLE, will be published in June 2014 from Grand Central/Twelve. Twelve is a relatively new imprint of Hachette Book Group that releases no more than one “singular book” per month. A book trailer for WHAT IS VISIBLE will be featured on Amazon; we will post it here as soon as it’s available.
Kimberly Elkins’ fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The Atlantic, The Iowa Review, The Chicago Tribune, Best New American Voices, Glamour and Slice, among others. She was a finalist for the National Magazine Award in fiction, and fellowships include Harvard, Radcliffe and the Kerouac Project for WHAT IS VISIBLE. Kimberly teaches at BU and in the MFA program at The University of Hong Kong, and lives in Cambridge, MA.
