Kayleigh Ford is a fiction writer and Baltimore native whose interests lie in the (un)real and the weird. She graduated magna cum laude from Tufts University in spring of 2021with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in French. A recipient of the Morse Hamilton Fiction Writing Prize and the Morton N. Cohen Creative Writing Award, her undergraduate senior thesis was comprised of a collection of short stories that posed psychological and existential questions about the inescapability of what we inherit from our blood relatives, for better and for worse. She is a ferocious lover of cats, crystals, and non-dairy milk.
