Molly Caro May is a writer whose work explores body, place and the foreign. She teaches writing workshops across the country, though once cut her teeth as a fruit-picker and artist's model. Her memoir The Map of Enough was called "addictive" by Elle Magazine. She received a writing fellowship at the Taft Nicholson Environmental Humanities Center, where she wrote the first draft of her second book, Body Full of Stars. On most days, she would take exploring over sitting at a computer, which is why she tried to stand up when she writes. She is a graduate of Middlebury College and lives with her husband, daughters and tiger dog in Bozeman, Montana.
Her mission is to be one more person out there who helps democratize expression, because, as John Steinbeck once wrote (In Awe of Words), "We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome. One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say and to feel, 'Yes, that is the way it is, or at least that is the way I feel it. You're not as alone as you thought."
Story, she believes, can create a revolution.
