We are so excited to announce that Buffalo-based writer and previous contributor D. Arthur has joined Team Peach as our first-ever Outreach Coordinator! In this position, she will be assisting us with creative and strategic initiatives related to communications and events.
D. is a fiction writer, humor writer, and events producer. She first got involved with Peach when she performed comedy at our s03e02: Hidden Faces masquerade last winter in collaboration with our friends at Foundlings Press, and has volunteered at our events and been featured at our online journal in the time since. Earlier this season, we published her short story "E. Is for Entertainment" and nominated it for a Pushcart Prize shortly after. More of her work can be found in McSweeney's Internet Tendency, The Belladonna Comedy, Electric Literature, and elsewhere. She is currently at work on her first novel.
D. is the cofounder of Virago Buffalo, a creative collective that hosts events empowering and celebrating women, queer, and NB creatives in Buffalo. She is also a fiction reader for Split Lip Magazine, and currently serves as the Media & News Director for VIDA: Women in Literary Arts.
