About

I’m a writer, editor, publisher, and podcaster.

I’m the editor-in-chief of the literary and arts journal, Digging Through The Fat, publisher and series editor of the Digging Press Chapbook Series. I also host the podcast, Digging Through with Gessy Alvarez.

I write stories, poems, and essays about the middle of things. My writing has appeared in Sunlight Press, Hobart, Asteri(x), Lunch Ticket, Volume One Brooklyn, and other publications.

I have a MFA from Columbia University and was the recipient of scholarships from Columbia University, the Fine Arts Work Center, and the Aspen Writers’ Foundation, as well as, artist residencies at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts and the Millay Colony for the Arts, where I was a Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Creative Fellow. I split my time between New York and New Jersey.
