Dreamspeed Photography, head shot, Colleen Kearney RichI recently shot Colleen Kearney Rich for her new book, Things You Won’t Tell Your Therapist. Colleen and I both went to graduate school at George Mason University, and it was great to see her again.

One of the founding editors of the literary magazine So To Speak: A Feminist Journal of Language and Art, Colleen Kearney Rich is currently a reviews editor for Literary Mama. Her writing has been published in the Washington Post, Phoebe, Minerva Rising, and the anthology Amazing Graces: Yet Another Collection of Fiction by Washington Area Women, among others. She lives in Virginia and is at work on a novel.

Colleen’s new book is Things You Won’t Tell Your Therapist . Stephen Goodwin says, “Colleen Kearney Rich doesn’t shy away from anything; as you read, you can feel the language slicing away everything that is irrelevant as she gets closer and closer to the core of deep, intimate experience.”

Check out the title story published in SmokeLong Quarterly.
