Brahna Yassky began writing 10 years ago because she felt compelled to put into prose the the drastic changes she experienced after having literally been on fire. Her first book, "Slow Dancing With Fire: a memoir," is forthcoming January 2022. She won honorable mention for the 2018 Doheny Prize from the Center for Fiction, finalist for 2019 Brooklyn Non-fiction Prize. Yassky has had essays published in American Writers Review 2020, Salon, The Independent, The Ethel, The Girlfriend and more. With degrees as a visual artist she has exhibited extensively including MOMA, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Hudson River Museum, The Painting Center (NYC), The Bali Purnati Center and commissions from the NYC Dept. of Health for a mural and subway posters. She lives in Brooklyn.
