Isabelle Stillman is a writer, teacher, and musician from St. Louis, Missouri. She began writing as a young girl, studied fiction through college and graduate school, and taught creative writing to high schoolers. Her most recent writing endeavor has been that of writing songs – Isabelle released her first full-length album, Middle Sister, in July of 2019. She then quit her job to go on tour. Her fiction and songwriting both explore ideas about coming of age, gender, mental health, and religion. In the classroom, she teaches writing as a vehicle for students to see the world in all its realities and to carve their individual space within it. Isabelle’s music is available on all streaming platforms; this is her first published piece of fiction.
