Erica Frederick -


Erica Frederick is a queer, Haitian-American writer and an MFA candidate in fiction at Syracuse University. She writes about being brought up by immigrants, brought up in brotherhood, brought up while being big in all the ways there are to be big—in body, in vitriol, in Blackness in Florida suburbia. She was the 2019 VIDA Fellow for the Chautauqua Writers’ Festival and is the 2021 winner of the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation College Fiction Award. She’s a child of the internet and ran a quasi-successful fan blog in her teens. You can find her on Twitter @ericafrederick
