Sarah Layden earned an MFA in fiction at Purdue University. Her poetry also appears in Tipton Poetry Journal and the anthology Just Like a Girl. Her short fiction can be found in The Evansville Review, Freight Stories, Vestal Review, and elsewhere, with nonfiction in REAL, Indianapolis Monthly, and flashquake. She teaches writing at IUPUI and Marian College in Indianapolis, and recently completed a novel.

In answer to our question of why she writes, Sarah responded:

"Writing is the best way I know how to make sense of the world. Save for a time machine, it’s the chance to get a do-over in life, re-imagine situations and outcomes. To corral a daydreaming mind and put it to work."
