Stephanie Skaff writes fiction and songs. She's made performance projects about NYC street vendors, an aging custom machinist named Hugo, and a woman growing up, working in and disappearing from the town of Wassaic, NY. She worked for several years as the director of Beyond Bullets, a gun violence prevention program for DCTV.
In 2015, she received her MFA in fiction writing from Hunter College. Her work has been supported and brought to life by Lovers & Other Strangers, The Street Vendor Project, Vermont Studio Center, The Wassaic Project, Guapamacataro Interdisciplinary Center for Art and Ecology, XO Projects, Inc. and UnionDocs, as well as Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Puffin Foundation Ltd. and Princess Grace Foundation - USA.
She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her husband and their dog, and works at The Brooklyn Rail.
