Jordan Coriza

Great news from Jordan Coriza (Fiction ’08), who recently published a story in the Bare Life Review, a journal dedicated to immigrant and refugee writers! The story is a fictionalized account of Jordan’s early days in the US.

He says, Largely based on my own immigrant experience, “Shine” tells the story of a young man who’s recently arrived in the U.S. and takes a job as a shoe shiner in Boston’s Financial District. Although he has to master English first, he’s eager to enroll in veterinary school and prove his father wrong. Meanwhile, his friendship with the company’s driver teaches him a few lessons that will serve him well in this new land.

Congrats, Jordan!  We’re looking forward to reading your story and getting to know this new literary journal.

Jordan Coriza’s stories have appeared in the Chicago Quarterly Review, the Worcester Review, the Bare Life Review, and elsewhere. Though he calls Boston home, he’s lived in Argentina, Brazil, and spent time in Italy. He makes a living as a communications professional for a nonprofit global health organization and is writing a novel set in Argentina during its last military dictatorship.
