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 received her MFA in Fiction at Syracuse University. Her work is forthcoming in cream city review, 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.
