My name is Brittani Miller, and if you are reading this you either a) stumbled upon my website, or b) were subscribed to my website previously. I just did a major overhaul, so either way you’re gonna be looking at a completely different website!
I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself, and give you an idea of what you can expect here. I am a 23 year old writer from Southern Illinois. I have a B.A. in English from University of Illinois Springfield, and will be beginning grad school at Lindenwood University next semester (Fall 2022). I also work full-time in a hospital, so I am just all around a woman of many hats. I have a cat named Frannie, and a dog named Togo (after Nancy Drew’s dog, if you wondered). I’ve been writing since I was very young, and have been very fortunate to get to follow that passion as an adult. My writing has appeared in several magazines, most recently Pink Panther and Metamorphoses (you can view a full list of my publications here), and I will be self-publishing my first chapbook collection next month. I am also the co-founder of the independent literary magazine CentraLit.
I am very passionate about AYA chronic illness and cancer, as well as suicide prevention and mental health. I have struggled with illness since I was 17, and was diagnosed with cancer when I was 19. I’m sure I’ll elaborate on that story here someday, but for now I’ll just say it really changed things for me and made me want to do a lot of good. My goal is to use my writing in ways that raise awareness and make others feel less alone. I also think it is important to advocate that being ill – mentally or physically – shouldn’t stop you from following your dreams.
In my free time (when I’m not writing, working, or going to school), I enjoy computer gaming, ukulele, collecting vinyl, crocheting, reading, binge-watching TV, and cuddling with my pets.
Thank you for checking out my website, I hope you find something to enjoy! You can view my full bio here.
