Diane Nicole Javier
Diane Nicole (she/her) is a fiction and nonfiction writer from Southern California and Central Luzon. She is a second year graduate student in the Creative Writing program, where she is a recipient of the 2021 Dean's Summer Fellowship Award, and an instructor for introductory creative fiction (5F) and introductory creative nonfiction (5NF). Before joining the program, she has worked as a writing and reading tutor for students learning English as a second language, and as a caregiver for folks of various ages and cognitive and physical abilities.
Currently, she is at-work on a collection of tales containing watermelon babies, bears, help-speak, and of worlds articulated beyond, behind, and beneath windowsills. When not writing, she enjoys following her curiosities and engaging in activities such as fishing, tractor driving, and game writing. Someday, she hopes to learn the names of all the birds and trees she'll encounter in her daily life.
Read, meditate, get lost in any and all writing/artwork/divinatory tools that call to you. Take this as the [one] sign [you needed] to leaf through your yearbooks and angsty letters. Luid ka!
