My name is Keene Short. I am a writer in Spokane, Washington.

I write fiction and creative nonfiction. I am also interested in food history and twentieth century political history.

Additionally, I am the editor-in-chief for Atticus Review, and am a regular prose manuscript reader for Split/Lip Press.

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.

If you like what I do and want to support me as a writer and editor, you can buy me a coffee here. It would be much appreciated.
