My name is Keene Short. I am a writer in Spokane, Washington.
I predominantly write fiction and creative nonfiction. I am also interested in food history and twentieth century history, particularly the Cold War and political history.
I am also a volunteer prose manuscript reader for Split/Lip Press and the incoming managing editor for Atticus Review. I have three complete prose manuscripts (a novel, short stories, and essays) just waiting to be published.
I hold an MFA in creative writing from the University of Idaho, and have an MA in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and two BA degrees in History and English from Northern Arizona University.
My interests and skills vary widely, ranging from research to cooking to photography. Please feel free to explore my work here or contact me by email below.
