Sooze Lanier is a writer and photographer living in Chicago, IL. Her first collection of short stories, The Game We Play,
was called “deliciously painful” by Paste Magazine, and Joe Meno said it is “an outstanding debut that should reaffirm
our shared belief in the absolute necessity and imaginative possibility of the short story.” Lanier’s work can be found in
The Spoiler’s Hand, Hairtrigger, Hobart, Annalemma, and in collaboration with Yes Press Books.
