I am a Posse Foundation alumni originally from Atlanta, Georgia, but I've lived in Peru, Mexico, Switzerland, and Spain. I’ve had flash fiction stories published in Slippage Lit and Format.Papier and nonfiction work published in Naturally Curly and The Jewish Press. I will have a short story on Jewish Pirates published in the Days of Awe anthology in 2024 and another short story published in the Jewish Futures anthology published by Fantastic Books in 2023. I am also a semi-finalist for the Reboot Studios Fund. I have a newsletter with a consistent and involved readership at tinyurl.com/rivbegun.
