Maya McOmie is a biracial/queer writer with connections to Ohio, the West Coast, and Tokyo, Japan. She holds an MFA in Poetry from the Ohio State University, where she taught creative writing and English composition. Her work has appeared in or is forthcoming from Red Rock Review, MAYDAY, Gulf Stream Magazine, and New World Writing, among others.
