Bio and Links

If you have gotten here by accident, I am not the Danielle Evans who won America’s Next Top Model, Danielle Evans the martial arts champion, Danielle Evans the photographer, or any of the other people who share my surprisingly popular name. I am a fiction writer and professor of creative writing and literature. My work has appeared in magazines including The Paris Review, A Public Space, Callaloo, and Phoebe, has been anthologized in The Best American Short Stories 2008, and is forthcoming in New Stories from the South and the Best American Short Stories 2010. I am the author of the short story collection Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self, which will be published by Riverhead books in September 2010, and I am currently at work on a novel titled The Empire Has No Clothes. I received an MFA in fiction from the Iowa Writers Workshop, was a fellow at the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing, and am now teaching fiction at American University in Washington DC.
