Goldie Peacock writes stories, essays, and poems. Their words appear in publications such as HuffPost, Sundog Lit, (mac)ro(mic), and more. As a performer and art model, Goldie spent over a decade bouncing between frenetic movement and absolute stillness before chilling out and becoming a writer. This rich past experience often informs their writing. Celebrations of Goldie’s creative work include: a Brooklyn Nightlife Award and a Go Magazine Readers’ Choice Award, nominations for Best of the Net and Best Small Fictions, mentions in two drag history books, a gig headlining the Austin International Drag Festival, workshops taught at venues such as NYU, Georgia Tech, and The University of Southern Maine, and residencies with Chez Bushwick, Asylum Arts, and Earthdance. A panelist for the Newfound Prose Prize and first reader for Shortwave, they live in Lenapehoking (Brooklyn).
