GROUP RETREATS 2023
We are delighted to announce the winning cohort of our February Catskills residency: Rachel E. Gross, Byrd Pinkerton and Angela Chen.
These three creative forces are exploring the ways that medicine and technology rewrite notions of the body, the mind, and the world around us. While in the Catskills, Rachel (who reports on gender bias and marginalized voices in medicine for outlets like The New York Times, and whose book “Vagina Obscura: An Anatomical Voyage” has been shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal) will be researching the patient-doctor relationship for a feature on intersex care. Angela (senior editor at Wired Magazine and author of the acclaimed “Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex”) will be restructuring a sci-fi novel on sexuality and the self, and Byrd (a senior producer and reporter for Vox’s science podcast “Unexplainable”) will be working on a series of sci-fi horror short films. Thank you to everyone who applied!
