Wren Awry is an essayist, editor and aspiring historian deeply interested in the connections between food and collective liberation, anti-capitalism, and queerness. Their essays have been published by The Rumpus, Entropy, Blindfield Journal and in the book Rebellious Mourning: The Collective Work of Grief, among other places; and they’re currently working on an anthology for PM Press. They were raised in the suburbs of NYC but now live in a small town outside of Tucson, Arizona.

Awry has a BA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of Arizona, but much of their learning has taken place in anarchist collective spaces, feminist book stores, direct action campaigns, as part of organizations for environmental and border justice, and in dishpits and on prep lines in restaurant kitchens. For all of their many teachers, they are grateful.
