Paulette Livers 

Paulette Livers Is the author of the novel CEMENTVILLE, winner of Elle magazine’s 2014 Readers' Prize and finalist for the Center for Fiction's Flaherty-Dunnan Prize and the Chicago Writers Association Book of the Year. She grew up in Kentucky and has lived and worked in Louisville, Atlanta, and Boulder as a painter, illustrator, and book designer for publishers around the country. Her lifelong love of writing and literature led her a decade ago to a writing group, where she began to see her own writing as something to be shared beyond the privacy of her studio. Paulette has since received awards, residencies, and fellowships from the Artcroft Foundation, Aspen Writers Foundation, the Bedell Foundation, Center for the American West, Denver Women’s Press Club, Key West Literary Seminars, and Ox-Bow Artist Residence. The recipient of the Meyerson Prize for Fiction, her work has also been been recognized by Britain’s Bridport Prize, Hunger Mountain, Writers at Work, and Red Hen Press. Her stories have appeared in the Southwest Review, The Dos Passos Review, Spring Gun Press, and elsewhere and can be heard at the audio-journal Bound Off. Her work is represented by Michelle Brower of Folio Literary Management. A member of the Squaw Valley Community of Writers, she lives in Chicago.
