Hello, and thanks for visiting! My name is Steffan Triplett. I’m a Black, creative nonfiction writer and instructor, born and raised in southwest Missouri. My primary interests are in hybrid memoir writing and the essay, though sometimes my writing manifests through poetry. I love pop-culture: particularly, television, and music. Formerly, I was Co-Editor-In-Chief for the literary magazine Hot Metal Bridge and an Editorial Intern at Black Nerd Problems.

My work has been featured in Essay Daily and has been published in BOAAT, Foundry Kweli Journal, the Shade Journal, Underblongpnk prl, Beecher’s Magazine, FreezeRay, Red Paint Hill, and Wildness, where it was nominated for “Best of the Net,” with work forthcoming in DIAGRAMThe Offing, Ghost ProposalAnomaly, NightBlock, Nepantla: An Anthology Dedicated to Queer Poets of Color, and The Blueshift Journal. I have received fellowships from Lambda Literary and Callaloo and am a VONA/Voices alum. I’m a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis where I was a John B. Ervin Scholar and received my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Pittsburgh.
