Caroline took her first solo trip to another country at 23, after unexpectedly losing her job and deciding to spend part of her severance pay on a week in Venice. Since then, she’s driven across the country, travelled to Canada and South America on her own, and spent a couple of weeks in Turkey with her partner. She has an MFA in fiction and her work has appeared in several literary magazines such as Bird’s Thumb, Upstreet, and others. She recently moved to Istanbul and is working on a book manuscript set in Venice, inspired by that first solo trip.
