STACY NATHANIEL JACKSON

Stacy Nathaniel Jackson, born in Los Angeles, attended Ramona Convent College Preparatory School for Girls and California Girls State in a former incarnation of his life. He is a retired finance director of African American and Filipina descent who began writing after a serendipitous corporate layoff. His artistic practice in multiple forms addresses gender, family history, and conflict emergence.

His poems, plays, essays, and visual art have appeared in Electric Literature, Foglifter, The Georgia Review, and The Offing among others. He is a Cave Canem poetry fellow, recipient of an individual artist grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission, a Millay Arts Vincent Prize recipient and Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Creative Fellow, a 2023 Hurston/Wright Foundation summer fellow in speculative fiction, and a 2024 Jack Straw Cultural Center Writers Program residency recipient. His debut novel The Ephemera Collector is forthcoming from Liveright in 2025.

Stacy received his BAFA, magna cum laude from the University of Southern California, a graduate assistantship in sculpture from the University of Arizona, an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. Influences include Octavia E. Butler, Walter Mosley, Colson Whitehead, Suzan-Lori Parks, and Martin Puryear. He splits his time between Sunset Beach, North Carolina and Washington, DC.
