Erika Nichols-Frazer

I am a writer, editor, and reader from the Green Mountains of Vermont. I am the new editor of The Mountain Troubadour, the Poetry Society of Vermont's annual print journal.


I have an MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars and a B.A. in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Creative Writing from Sarah Lawrence College. 

My memoir, Feed Me, was published by Casper Press in December 2022. My poetry collection, Staring Too Closely, was published by Main Street Rag in September 2023. 

I edited the mental health recovery anthology, A Tether to This World: Stories & Poems About Recovery (Main Street Rag, 2021). 

More than thirty of my short stories, essays, and poems have appeared in print and online. My story "No One Will Ever Hear You" won Noir Nation's 2020 Golden Fedora Fiction Prize. My story "Ember" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. See Publications for a full list of publications.

I am the Writing & Humanities Coordinator at Vermont State University Johnson, have worked as a journalist, freelance writter and editor, educator, and a developmental editor for New Degree Press. 

When I'm not writing, you can usually find me snowboarding, reading, or cooking.

Say hi!
