Meet The Writers
Writer Profile: Alice Neiley
Alice Neiley has a BA in English with a minor in music from the University of Vermont, and currently attends Hunter College’s Creative Non-fiction MFA program in New York City. For six years in between college and graduate school, she lived in Provincetown, MA, writing in the off season, and earning money each summer working an eclectic array of jobs: retailer, yoga instructor, waitress, barista, landscaper, and English tutor. Each year, when Provincetown’s population shifted from 60,000 in the tourist season to 3,000 come November, Alice went back to full days of writing and scoping out new musical artists. Now, she wanders around the streets of Harlem, listens to the classical musicians practicing their instruments in her apartment building at all hours, buys as many student tickets to the Met and New York Philharmonic as possible, explores jazz clubs, and writes at her green desk.
