Hi, I’m Carly. I was born in southern California, raised in a terrible small Texas town, and spent the better part of my twenties living in Beijing, China. I have a B.A. (summa cum laude) in Writing & Rhetoric from St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX, and an M.A. in Writing for Stage & Broadcast (distinction) from RCSSD in London, UK.
I am the author of the novel Year of the Goose (Dec. 2015, Unnamed Press), and the memoir, A Farewell to Walmart (Nov. 2016, Little A). My essays and short fiction have appeared in The Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of Books, LitHub, and Identity Theory, among other publications. My short plays have been performed at the Hampstead Theatre and the Bread & Roses Theatre in London. I’m a screenwriter (TV & film), and I write essays for Medium.
