If you dig deep enough in the snow of Syracuse, you'll find Jono Naito obsessing over fiction, poetry, and live-action game design.

She is currently attending the MFA program at Syracuse University, where she is also an Editor-in-Chief for the journal Salt Hill. Her work is forthcoming in cream city review, Fearsome Critters, Typehouse Literary Magazine, and Paper Darts. Her story "Three Days Later" was featured as Fiction Pick of the Week on Longform, and she was a finalist for the Jeffrey E. Smith Editor’s Prize.

She is currently working on a novel, Half, which explores family stories of her Japanese ancestors in the 19th century.
