About Kim

Kim Adrian is the author of two books of lyric criticism, Dear Knausgaard (published as part of a series that aims to "reinvent literary criticism") and Sock ("reflects on the brilliance present in the minutiae of our lives" —Shelf Awareness). Her 2018 memoir, The Twenty-Seventh Letter of the Alphabet, uses the form of a glossary to tell the story of a mother's mental illness. It is part of University of Nebraska's American Lives Series, edited by Tobias Wolff, and is a Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist. Kim is the editor of The Shell Game: Writers Play with Borrowed Forms, an anthology of lyric essays that a review in The Millions praised as providing “a sense of hope about literature and its capacity for evolution and change.” Several of Kim's essays and stories have been listed as Notables in the Best American and Pushcart Prize anthologies; two have been translated into Mandarin for Chinese literary magazines. Her work has been supported by the Edward Albee Foundation, the Bread Loaf Writing Seminars, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, PEN/New England, The Ragdale Foundation, and others. She has taught creative writing in the nonfiction program at Brown University, as well as at Boston and Suffolk Universities. She runs a free, monthly, craft-focused newsletter for writers, with writing tips and prompts, called Write On (writeonnewsletter.com).
