Alexandria Barkmeier is the current Fiction Editor for the Indiana Review and a recent recipient of the Writer in the World Fellowship. Her fiction can be found at the Eunoia Review, and she has also published policy analysis in the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy and the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Section. She comes to the MFA by way of living her early life in Boulder, attending college in Pennsylvania, teaching elementary school in Denver, and completing law school and policy work in Washington, DC. She is a graduate of Gettysburg College and Georgetown Law. Most of the time she can be found with her perfect and adorable black lab named Gizmo, whom experts anticipate will be the first dog to live to be 100.
