Stephanie Skaff writes fiction and music. 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. For several years she worked as director of Beyond Bullets, a gun violence prevention program for DCTV, and most recently she led development efforts at the Brooklyn Rail. She currently works at Dieu Donné, a nonprofit papermill in NYC.

In 2015, she earned her MFA in fiction writing from Hunter College. Her writing has been published in The Brooklyn Rail and Lovers & Other Strangers. Her work has been supported by 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 a wild animal named Dizzy.
