Bailey Morrison

I'm a word nerd who has been working in trade and scholarly book publishing since 2012. I am the Digital Media Producer and Direct Promotions Manager for the University of Texas Press. Do you have an interesting project you want help with? Drop me a note.

I had a tiny flash of brilliance with my own writing in the early 2000s. Then, I floated for years. Now, after listening to a thousand goddamn podcasts, here I am with a Squarespace domain just like everyone else, intent on rigging my shoelaces to a ceiling fan and giving this writer thing a real whirl.

Influences: Lorrie Moore, Janice Galloway, Shirley Jackson, Toni Morrison, Isaac Hayes, Kristin Hersh, Zadie Smith, Theodore Roethke, and Juicy J.
