The Wardrobe’s Best Dressed: A Secret History of World Wide Outage by Elizabeth O’Brien


This selection comes from the collection A Secret History of World Wide Outage, available from Diode Editions. Our curator for July is Tierney Bailey.

Tierney Bailey is a Libra, a lover of science fiction and poetry, and studies Korean in her spare time. Amongst her pursuits, Tierney is currently the production editor at Redivider Magazine and a copyeditor at Strange Horizons. As a graduate student at Emerson College, Tierney is studying publishing in the Writing and Publishing program. True to her Midwesterner roots, Tierney still smiles upon the slightest bit of eye contact, makes small talk in lines and elevators, and exclaims “ope!” with barely any provocation at all. If you can’t find her on a train somewhere between Providence and Boston, she can easily be found screaming into the void on Twitter as @ergotierney.

Elizabeth O’Brien lives in Minneapolis, where she earned an MFA in Poetry from the University of Minnesota and served as editor of dislocate. She is the recipient of a Minnesota Emerging Writers’ Grant through the Loft Literary Center, and the James Wright Poetry Award from the Academy of American Poets. Her work—poetry & prose—has appeared in many journals and magazines, including New England Review, The Rumpus, Tin House, Wigleaf, Pank, Diagram, Radar Poetry,Revolver, Sixth Finch, and others.
