Abigail Savitch-Lew tries to keep fiction out of her reporting and stuff as much reporting as elegantly possible into her fiction.
A native of Brooklyn, she likes to write and think about housing, land use, displacement, community land trusts, collectivism, capitalism, racism, white supremacy, being half Jewish and half Chinese, anti-imperialism, and the future of America.
She is a former staff reporter for City Limits, and her work has additionally appeared in The Appeal, YES! Magazine, Colorlines, The Nation, Dissent Magazine, Jacobin, Open City, and Urban Omnibus.
Her short stories have been published in The Round, Post Road, The Best Teen Writing of 2010, and The Apprentice Writer. She is a part-time lecturer in Creative Writing and an MFA in Creative Writing-Fiction student at Rutgers University in Newark, and is currently working on her first novel.
