Kira is a first-year MFA candidate in fiction at Syracuse University. She is delighted by oddity: her work sits at the intersection of humor and horror with its hazard lights on. She graduated from Mount Holyoke College with degrees in English and Religious Studies in 2019, where she was awarded the Barbara Benson Short Story Prize and the Jean Sudrann '39 Award for her work in creative writing. In 2020, she published a nonfiction piece in Lilith Magazine. She is writing a novel and a collection of short stories and works hard to give her cat and four guinea pigs a happy life.
