Zach Powers splits his time between Fairfax, Virginia and Savannah, Georgia.
He is writing this bio himself, and writing it in the third person, which to him feels rather pompous. He is averse to pomposity and is really quite personable. You'd like him. Give Zach Powers a chance. Why do you have to be so judgmental? His debut book, Gravity Changes, won the BOA Short Fiction Prize and was published in 2017 by BOA Editions. His prose and exactly one poem have appeared in such journals as Black Warrior Review, The Conium Review, Forklift, Ohio, PANK, the Tin House blog, and elsewhere. He co-founded the literary arts nonprofit Seersucker Live. He led the writers’ workshop at the Flannery O’Connor Childhood Home for eight years. His writing for television won an Emmy, and he was a columnist for Savannah Morning News.
