Contributor History

Erin Kate Ryan’s work has appeared in Glimmer Train and A cappella Zoo, and she was a 2014 Fellow at the Edward Albee Foundation and Hambidge Creative Center residency programs. “Many Deaths of Paula Jean Welden” is the afterword to a two-month-long experiential fiction that employed traditional text, social media, image, signage, fine art, puzzle, rumor, and chance to tell the story of a missing girl, and that concluded in June 2014. Paula Jean Welden, the missing girl at the center of the project, disappeared from Bennington College on December 1, 1946. She has never been found.
