Meet the Flock: Tami Mohamed Brown

Name:  Tami Mohamed Brown

Role at Red Bird:  Non Fiction Editor

How I became involved with Red Bird and why I agreed to do it: 
I was very taken by Red Bird’s beautiful broadsides and chapbooks at an event I attended and eventually made my way to the website. I loved the idea of “possibilities” and emailed Dana a short essay I had written, wondering if there was something different that could be done with it.  It became a Red Bird pamphlet titled Three Oranges, which I love as a vehicle to get shorter work out into the world.  When she asked if I’d be interested in serving as a non-fiction editor, I was thrilled. 

Recent Red Bird project(s): 
I’m new to the editorial team and am extremely excited to have the opportunity to take on manuscripts of creative non-fiction—more to come!

A little about my own work and what I am currently working on: 
I have a long-term memoir project that I am working on, slowly and not always so steadily.  I’m always working on shorter pieces to keep me energized, inspired, primarily, by place and happenings of the everyday.
