Erica Frederick is a queer, Haitian-American writer with a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing from Florida State 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 is an alum of the Hurston/Wright Foundation’s Summer Writers Week and the 2019 VIDA Fellow for the Chautauqua Writers' Festival. She’s a child of the internet and ran a quasi successful fan blog in her teens.
