Nino Cipri

Nino Cipri is a queer and trans/nonbinary writer, editor, and educator. A former resident of Chicago, they are a graduate of the Clarion Writers’ Workshop and the University of Kansas’s MFA program. Nino’s fiction and essays have been published by dozens of different venues. Their short story collection ​Homesick​ won the Dzanc Short Fiction Collection Prize, and their novella ​Finna — ​about queer heartbreak, working retail, and wormholes — will be published by Tor.com in 2020. Nino has also written plays, screenplays, and radio features; performed as a dancer, actor, and puppeteer; and worked as a stagehand, bookseller, bike mechanic, and labor organizer. One time, an angry person on the internet called Nino a verbal terrorist, which was pretty funny.
