Hruska Nonfiction Prize, and grants from the Kentucky Arts Council and the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. Wade is the author of eleven books of poetry and creative nonfiction. She teaches in the creative writing program at Florida International University in Miami and reviews regularly for Lambda Literary Review and the Rumpus. She is co-author (with Denise Duhamel) of The Unrhymables: Collaborations in Prose (Noctuary Press) a dual female reading experience that navigates the social clock, desire across the gendered spectrum, marriage, divorce, fertility/non-motherhood, violence, and body image with humor, poignancy, thoughtful reflection, and striking narrative scenes. Duhamel (b. 1961) and Wade (b. 1979) harmonize their unique voices that bracket “Generation X.”
