Beverly Parayno

Oakland
In the mid-80s, I dropped out of high school and ran away from California to upstate New York with my long-haired, motorcycle-driving boyfriend. I'm working on a coming-of-age memoir set during this time period to explore my pursuit of love and freedom, and the desire for someone to save me.

My work has appeared in The Rumpus, Narrative, Huizache, Warscapes and Southword. I have an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and am a participant of Tamim Ansary's memoir workshop.
