Penny Dickerson

Penny Dickerson is a writer of place, risk, and experimental inspiration. Her current creative direction merges poetics with the nonfiction genre, and she is currently penning an unconventional memoir that delves into how cancer---and other such irritants---have affected her relationship with God. To eat and buy toilet paper, Penny works as a Florida-based literary journalist and in 2015 was awarded both an H.F. Guggenheim fellowship in reporting and an “Equal Voice” fellowship from the Marguerite Casey Foundation. She earned her MFA degree in Creative Writing from Lesley University and has been published in EBONY.com, Orlando Arts Magazine, Mosaic, Philadelphia Stories and Philadelphia Stories 10-year Anthology, newamericamedia.com, ARBUS, Florida Courier, Daytona Times, Miami Times and is scheduled to debut in the Orlando Sentinel’s magazine, Signature.
