Darcy Casey is a writer, editor, and teacher holding an MFA from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast program. She’s a member of MWPA, AWP, and The Authors Guild. By day she’s a technical writer, but by night she slips off her disguise and strives to tell the truth as shown through fiction. When she’s not working on her novels-in-progress, she teaches writing workshops, champions for women and non-binary individuals, and tries to rescue all the furry critters. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Yemassee, CutBank, Brilliant Flash Fiction, River River, and elsewhere.

The opening page for her novel, Pity-Heart, was Longlisted for the Retreat West Best Opening Page Competition in 2020 and her flash CNF piece, “My Sister and Other Big Things,” was a runner-up for the CutBank Big Sky, Small Prose contest in 2019. 

She currently lives in Maine but her heart is always traveling. When she’s not writing, she drinks coffee or kombucha, discovers ways to make yoga for everyone, and goes running with her dog.
