Together with the Talve-Goodman family, One Story is pleased to announce our 2023 Adina Talve-Goodman Fellow: Nathan Xie.
Nathan Xie is a writer from Connecticut who now lives in New York. He is a 2023 Periplus Collective fellow. His work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and can be found in SmokeLong Quarterly, Waxwing, Ghost Parachute, and more. He is working on a gay, coming-of-age novel featuring a cult, a cello, and a Chinese-American family.
The Adina Talve-Goodman Fellowship was created in memory of One Story’s former managing editor, the writer Adina Talve-Goodman. This fellowship offers a year-long mentorship on the craft of fiction writing with One Story magazine, and is given to an emerging writer whose work speaks to issues and experiences related to inhabiting bodies of difference. This means writing that centers, celebrates, or reclaims being marginalized through the lens of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, religion, illness, disability, trauma, migration, displacement, dispossession, or imprisonment. Previous winners of the Adina Talve-Goodman fellowship include Ani Cooney, Diana Veiga, Arvin Ramgoolam and Nay Saysourinho.
Finalists for the Adina Talve-Goodman fellowship will all receive two free online courses with One Story. Finalists for the 2023 Fellowship were:
- Sydney S. Kim
- Fajer Khansa
- Rochelle Marrett
- Niv Sekar
One Story is grateful to the Talve-Goodman Family, our volunteer readers, all of the friends and organizations who helped spread the word about this fellowship, and the many talented writers who took the leap and shared their work with us. Applications for our 2024 Fellowship will open in Fall 2023.
