Taos Resident Award Winner, Jean-Marie Saporito

Jean-Marie Saporito received her MFA in Creative Writing in 2011 from Vermont College of Fine Arts. During her tenure there, she was nominated for an AWP Intro Award. She’s published non-fiction and has a critical essay forth coming in the on-line literary journal Numero Cinq.  She’s completing a linked story collection and has begun her first novel. She teaches creative writing seminars in Taos, New Mexico.

Praise for Jean-Marie’s work:

"… the grim physical corruption of disease serve as a backdrop and a kind of dramatic warrant for wonderful stories of love and lost love."  Douglas Glover, Winner of the Governor-General's Award for Fiction

"Filled with texture and precise detail of a nurse's life … these stories are fully imagined and emotionally resonate in fictional form..." Jess Row, O'Henry Award recipient,  2010
