Sarah Hollenbeck has published personal essays in Dogwood, TriQuarterly, and Shondaland. Her essay "A Goldmine" was nominated for a Pushcart and received a Notable Mention in Best American Essays. She's also a contributor to the new anthology NASTY WOMEN, which was published by Picador earlier this year and features Cheryl F*ckin Strayed. But she’s often distracted from her writing by her day-job running Women & Children First, one of the last remaining feminist bookstores in the country. As the store's co-owner she has been featured in New CIty's Lit50 twice and in Publisher's Weekly Star Watch, which honors 40 young people who are making a difference in the U.S. publishing industry.
Three things you may not know about Sarah...
1) Kinda obsessed with Bojack Horseman to the point that I have incorporated direct quotes from the show into pivotal entries in my diary.
2) My secret shame is how familiar I am with 7-Eleven’s selection of roller grill snacks.
3) I laugh every time I see anyone fall down.
