Kwame Ivery

NAME: Kwame Ivery

BIO: I was born in the Bronx, NY and was raised in New Jersey. I have an MFA in Dramatic Writing from New York University's Tisch School Of The Arts. My short story "Why Kristen Misses Push & Turn" will be featured in Smashed Cat magazine in August 2012.
WHAT I WRITE: I write short fiction that could be classified as bizarro, which is probably a fancy way of saying "weird."  My fiction presents reality, but it's a reality heavily laced with things that probably wouldn't happen in reality--pretty much the way reality looks in your dreams: you recognize it, but you don't recognize it. So in my stories you'll see pizza, but it'll be the kind of pizza whose cheese stretches through New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, etc.; you'll see a married couple, but one of them will have once been married to a horse; you'll see street vendors, but they will sell things like Geena Davis' tongue. That's what I write.
