Montanna Harling

Montanna is an MFA in Prose candidate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she teaches undergraduate writing courses. She graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Literature and Writing (Honors) from UC San Diego and had the incredible opportunity to research literary haunting at the University of Oxford. Montanna co-founded UC San Diego’s first-ever literary arts magazine organization, O(the)r People Magazine, and served as its Editor-in-Chief for three years. She writes speculative eco-fiction, with an emphasis on inheritance—her writing explores familial legacies and positions the ecological environment as a space that is infinitely inherited.
