      Online,

      Ashley C. Ford’s instant New York Times best-selling memoir, Somebody’s Daughter, steps into the world of growing up a poor Black girl in Indiana with a family fragmented by incarceration, exploring how isolating and complex such a childhood can be. As Ashley battles her body and her environment, she embarks on a powerful journey to find the threads between who she is and what she was born into, and the complicated familial love that often binds them. Ford has written or guest-edited for The Guardian, ELLE Magazine, BuzzFeed, OUT Magazine, Mailchimp Presents, Slate, Teen Vogue, New York Magazine, Allure, Marie Claire, The New York Times, Netflix Queue, Domino, Cup of Jo, and various other web and print publications. She's taught creative nonfiction writing at The New School and Catapult.Co, and had her work listed among Longform & Longread's Best of 2017. Born in Israel, now living in Brooklyn, Shira Erlichman is an author, visual artist, and musician. Her poems explore recovery – of language, of home, of mind. Her acclaimed poetry book Odes to Lithium centers around her experiences with mental illness. She has been awarded the Audre Lorde Award for Lesbian Poetry, the James Merrill Fellowship by the Vermont Studio Center, and a residency at The Millay Colony, among others. She was a Finalist for the Lambda Award and a Silver Medalist for the Nautilus Award, and her work has been featured in PBS NewsHour’s Poetry Series, The Seattle Times, and The New York Times, and many more.
