Nicole McCarthy is the Development Coordinator at Hugo House and was previously the Managing Editor of The James Franco Review. She occasionally teaches for the Write253 program, offering classes in experimental creative writing to youth in Tacoma. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Glass: a Journal of Poetry, The Shallow Ends, Ghost Proposal, Memoir Mixtapes, Civil Coping Mechanism’s A Shadow Map anthology, The Offing, Redivider, FIVE:2:ONE Magazine, and the 2018 Best American Experimental Writing anthology. Her work has also been performed and encountered as projection installation pieces throughout Tacoma and Seattle.

Nicole received 2018 GAP Award funding to begin her second hybrid book focusing on marriage, divorce, and shame. She will spend a week on a writing retreat to generate new material and the project will culminate with a public divorce performance in the spring.
