writer. storyteller. educator.
Tanya Aydelott is Pakistani American and spent most of her childhood in the Middle East. Since then, she has followed stories as though they were a ley line: she wrote her first fairy tale in 3rd grade, centered her undergraduate thesis on the uses of fairy tales in poetry, pursued an MA in anthropology and education (tracing stories and storytelling as an academic exercise), and finally decided to make time for her own creative writing. She earned an MFA in writing for children and young adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her short fiction has been published in FORESHADOW: Stories to Celebrate the Magic of Reading and Writing YA, Tales & Feathers Magazine, and Flash Fiction Online.
When not writing, she busies herself with making jam, recommending books to friends, abandoning jigsaw puzzles, and tending to her sansevieria and ZZ plants
