Melody Nixon Fiction and NonFiction Works Published
Melody Nixon has had a busy fall. Her short story,You Make Me Opaque was just published in Conjunctions web magazine which described it as “lovely, strange and brilliant.” Dissolve, an associative essay appears in Issue 14 of CURA Magazine.
I Believe New Yorkers is an essay in Amherst College's literary review, The Common that “explores the issues that so many of us grapple with — the art-work life balance, finding quiet time in a megalopolis, the self-mythologizing that's encouraged of writers in New York City.” Also in The Common, are interviews Melody conducted with fiction writers Benjamin Anastas and Justin Taylor about fiction and the writing process.
Melody and fellow VCCA Fellow Jeffrey Berg were both published in the November issue of No, Dear Magazine, Issue 14, Space.
Melody’s nonfiction piece Stay, published by Midnight Breakfast this fall, received a recommendation on the New York Times Opinion Pages (Op Talk section).
