Karie Fugett earned her B.A. in Creative Writing with a minor in Sociology at the University of South Alabama (USA). She will begin at Oregon State’s MFA program in nonfiction in the Fall of 2016 where she will work on her memoir American April and teach freshman English.
She is a co-founder and managing editor of the online literary and fine arts journal Random Sample Review. She is currently the Nonfiction Editor of USA’s Oracle Fine Arts Review 2016, was Editor-in-Chief of Oracle 2015, and was Poetry Editor of Oracle 2014. She was an Associate Editor at Mobile’s Negative Capability Press for two years, where she worked with numerous authors on their poetry books.
Karie is currently working on a memoir which documents her life as a caregiver then widow of her war-wounded husband. Her short-stories and poetry are often also inspired by this experience. Other interests that are reflected in her writing are women’s issues, travel, and American southern culture.
