Delaney is a first-year MFA candidate with a concentration in fiction. In 2019, she graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BA in English. Her creative work has been printed in several publications, including Crab Fat Magazine, Gravitas, Compressed, Bottom Shelf Whiskey, From Whispers to Roars, Cleaning Up Glitter Literary Magazine, The Haunted Traveler, and Coffin Bell Journal. A few of her many literary inspirations are Alice Walker, James Howe, Carmen Maria Machado, and Neil Gaiman. When she is not watching every Colin Firth movie ever made or hoarding lipstick like a really lame dragon, she is exploring the urban fantasy genre, finding ways to merge horror and humor, and writing run-on sentences. Presently, she is interning for Feels Blind Literary Magazine, an online publication seeking to publish the work of anyone identifying with the female experience, and unpacking the complicated relationship she has with the works of Stephen King.
