Glendaliz Camacho is a New York-based writer who was born in Bronx, NY. Through fiction, she explores what drives people to overcome fears of the unknown, failure, ridicule, or punishment long enough to change their lives and what it means when their attempts to untie themselves from society’s expectations are futile or only temporarily successful. Her writings have been published in The Female Complaint: Tales of Unruly Women, Shade Mountain Press (2015); All About Skin: Short Fiction by Women of Color, University of Wisconsin Press (2014); and The Butter. She was an artist-in-residence at Hedgebrook, Seattle, WA (2015), the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Nebraska City, NE (2015), and Caldera Arts, Caldera, OR (2015). She received a B.A. from Fordham University.
