Sara Majka

Sara Majka writes short stories about coastal New England and people living in difficult economic circumstances. Her work has appeared in such journals as Guernica, Virginia Quarterly Review and A Public Space, and her first book—a collection of stories called Cities I’ve Never Lived In—was published by Graywolf/A Public Space in 2016.

Majka earned graduate degrees from the University of Massachusetts–Amherst and Bennington College and was a fiction fellow at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center. She enjoys writing that blurs the line between fiction and real life and is also interested in absurdist tales and ghost stories. Before moving to Providence’s west side, she lived in New York City.
