Kayla Miller is the author of the chapbook See & Be Seen & Be Scene, the 2014 fiction winner of Five [Quarterly]‘s e-chapbook competition, and the recipient of numerous scholastic and creative awards, including the Talbot International Award and the Janef Newman Preston Prize for Fiction.

She’s also been freelancing since 2010. Her Reviews & Clips can be found in Atlanta Magazine, Georgia Tech Alumni, Creative Loafing Atlanta, EDGE Atlanta, EDGE Las Vegas, Downtown Zen, and DTLV.
Currently, she’s shopping two full-length works: a Southern Gothic novel and a short story collection. Four excerpts of her novel have been published. She teaches English and works as a writing consultant at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; she also writes as a freelance entertainment and theater reviewer. She loves coffee, leopard print, and dogs. For CV or to give a holler, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
