Montana Rogers received her B.A. in creative writing and music from Wheaton College (the one in Massachusetts). After graduation, she was awarded a Fulbright Grant to teach English in Bulgaria and spent two years working and living in a small city in the Balkan Mountains. During this time, she had the opportunity to travel throughout much of Eastern and Central Europe, inspiring some of her latest work. She loves writing short stories and flash fiction, capturing those “slice of life” moments when a character changes or realizes something that makes them think about the world in a different way. Her stories have been published or are forthcoming in The Sea Letter, emerge, and others. She is a recent graduate of Simon Fraser University’s The Writer’s Studio.
In addition to writing fiction, she writes web content and engaging, accessible articles that have been featured on NewEngland.com, GoOverSeas.com, and other web outlets. She has written on topics ranging from music to Irish proverbs to food, constructed travel guides, and generated SEO-friendly web content. She believes in the power of language and the importance of clear communication. She considers herself detail- and quality- oriented.
She is passionate about travel, tea-drinking, and the oxford comma (however, she is adept at adapting to different style guides).
