Anna Burke graduated from Smith College with degrees in English Literature and Studio Art. She was the inaugural recipient of the Sandra Moran Scholarship from the Golden Crown Literary Society’s Writing Academy and is currently pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Emerson College.
Her queer feminist novel, Thorn, was named 2019 LGBT+ Fiction Book of the Year by Foreword Reviews. When she is not writing fiction, she is an overly ambitious gardener and teacher. She and her wife live in Massachusetts with their two dogs, too many houseplants, and the occasional four-legged guest.
