Wistar Murray is a writer from Virginia farm country who now lives above a flower shop in Brooklyn. Wistar is a 2011 graduate of Columbia University’s MFA program in creative writing, where she was a 2010 winner of the Henfield Prize for fiction from the Joseph P. McCrindle Foundation. She received her BA in 2002 from the College of William & Mary, where she proved unexceptional. She has taught fiction workshops to medical students at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, and to faculty at UVA School of Medicine. Wistar writes dark, organ-gazing stories about sex and death (See “The Black Bear” on VICE.com and “A Submission to the April 16 Archives” in Amazon’s Day One), and is completing a novel that scrutinizes similar territory. In 2013 Zoetrope: All Story gave Wistar’s an honorable mention in its short fiction contest. In January 2015 Razorbill Books (Penguin Group) published Wistar’s young adult novel under a pseudonym.
