About Me

Holly A Stovall

Writer of fiction and creative nonfiction, teacher, editor


Holly is completing a thesis for her MFA in Creative Writing at Northwestern University’s School of Professional Studies.  She has an MA in Women’s History and a PhD in Spanish Literature.  For over a decade, she taught Women’s Studies at Western Illinois University, where she earned tenure, but her career as a feminist academic ended when a neoliberal governor starved WIU of funding.  Despite being one of the most diverse and economically successful departments in the university, the Department of Women’s Studies was closed, and her position eliminated.  

She’s an editor for Writer’s Resist.
