Jordyn Manczyk is a native of Lexington, Kentucky, where she currently lives with her husband and her droopy-eared Bagle-hound. She is a graduate of the University of Kentucky MFA program in Creative Writing, and she is currently a PhD student at UK studying Higher Education Policy and teaching Developmental Composition.
