Donna Tallent is an alumna of the Tin House Summer Writers Workshop, the recipient of a Slice Literary Conference scholarship, and completing the final semester of her MFA at Queens University of Charlotte. Her work has been described as “quietly powerful,” “deftly metaphorical,” and “a juxtaposition of cameos not related to each other in subject or even time.” In the spring of 2019, she was chosen to participate in AWP’s mentor/mentee program, Writer to Writer. Donna grew up in Spotsylvania, VA and now resides in Queens, NY.
