Amanda-Faye Jimenez

Amanda-Faye Jimenez is a queer, fat, Blaxican writer and literary performer. She is adequately self-centered and dramatic, but surprisingly does not have a web series yet. Her rejection letter from the PEN Center USA Emerging Voices Fellowship said her application stood out as one of the stronger submissions. She's totally going to submit again someday, but in the meantime she will continue working on her craft, entertaining her 900+ Facebook friends almost daily with her astute observations, and letting her dogs kiss her on the mouth, even though everyone keeps telling her that's some white people shit. Other interests include intersectional feminism, cooking, dancing, palm trees, internet research, tiny dogs, and taking multiple-choice tests. She lives in Los Angeles with her person Jo and her dogs Cinder and Freyja.
