Jane Ratcliffe’s short stories have appeared in New England Review, The SunMichigan Quarterly Review, NER Digital, Literary Orphans, The Intima, ROAR, and Knee-Jerk Magazine. “You Can’t Be Too Careful” was selected as a Best American Short Stories Notables 2013.
 
Her non-fiction work has appeared in numerous magazines and websites including O, The Oprah Magazine, Narratively, Vogue, The Huffington Post, Guernica, The Rumpus, The Manifest-Station, Tricycle, ROAR, The Detroit News, Teen People, Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, and Hour Detroit.
 
Her first novel The Free Fall (Henry Holt) was chosen by the New York Public Library as one of the most notable books of the year. She’s recently completed her second novel Run All The Way And Dodge The Shrapnel, which explores the unpopular peace movement in London during WWII along with the burgeoning women’s movement. Jane is working on her memoir Sweet Thing about being madly in love with a rock musician and working in the fashion industry in the gloriously-wild-and-sometimes-dangerous early eighties in New York City.
 
Jane lived on the Lower East Side for twenty-five years during which she wrote about music for Interview, Vh-1, The Detroit News, and other such publications. Alas, much of this writing is no longer accessible.
 
Jane holds a MFA in creative writing from Columbia University and a BFA in photography from the University of Michigan.
 
She currently teaches at Washtenaw Community College and has taught at The New School, Rutgers, as well as private workshops.
 
Jane shares her home in Michigan with a dog and two kitties. She dreams of one day buying up several hundred (thousand!) acres of land and creating a sanctuary for all creatures in need of a home.
