SJ Sindu is a writer and activist who focuses on traditionally silenced voices—the immigrant, the poor, the queer, the female-bodied, the non-Christian, the non-white. Sindu has an MA in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and is an incoming Ph.D. student in English at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Sindu is a fan of fluidity, and likes to blend genres and genders. Sindu’s creative writing has appeared in Brevity, Water~Stone Review, Harpur Palate, The MacGuffin, Sinister Wisdom, and elsewhere. Currently Sindu is dividing time between two projects: a novel about a Sri Lankan American lesbian in a marriage of convenience, and a collection of nonfiction essays exploring issues of war and gender.
