About

Rebecca Cuthbert

Rebecca Cuthbert lives, writes, and reads in Western New York. Her work has appeared in Brevity, Slipstream, Neworld Review, Blueline Magazine, and elsewhere. Her essay “What’s Left” is included in the anthology The Elpis Pages, a collective; and her story “Makeover” was recently featured on the Blood and Jazz Podcast by Last Girls Club. Her story “Joiner” placed as a finalist in the 2021 New Millennium Writing Awards, and her story “Six O’Clock House” earned an Honorable Mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Contest, 3rd Quarter (2021). More recently, her story “A Bargain at Twice the Price” earned an Honorable Mention from the Onyx Publications Winter Contest (2021), and was published in Etched Onyx magazine. It was also read on the Story Discovery Podcast. Rebecca is an Affiliate Member of the Horror Writers Association.

Rebecca serves as managing editor for Leapfrog Press (leapfrogpress.com), and teaches creative writing classes at SUNY Fredonia. She holds an MFA from West Virginia University (Fiction), and is going back to college one class at a time for a degree in Public Relations. She is most at home writing speculative fiction and slipstream–stories leaning over the edge of this world’s reality. She is currently working on a story collection she hopes to shop around before the end of this year.

When she isn’t writing or teaching or editing, Rebecca is in the garden or the kitchen. For more on those pursuits, check out her hobby project Dig, Bitch, Dig.
