The Writers’ Room of Boston knows how to throw a party

The Writers’ Room of Boston Fellowship named me as Finalist for 2018-2019. At the WROB reading and celebration last month, I got the chance to meet lots of the other Fellows and hear about their exciting projects! (And I ate lots of free cheese! And when I left my notebook and library book at the party, someone brought them down for me. So overall, 10/10.)

I hope to get some work done there in the future.

Check out my bio on their website.


Identity crisis

Here’s what’s going on: I published some short stories, won some awards, and completed my thesis under my birth name, K Brattin. There are confusing traces of this on the web. But as of May, 2017, my last name — personally, professionally and legally — is Chess.

Yeah, it’s a pretty great name. It was one of the first things I liked about the woman I married. Now I get to share it!
