Margarita Gokun Silver
My first experience with the writing craft came at a tender age of three when I stuck a pen refill into an electric outlet. Sparks flew in more ways than one but didn’t ignite a full writing career until many years later when I discovered that putting words on a page beat all of my previous endeavors in terms of being fulfilling and agonizing at the same time.
My work has appeared in THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST, THE JEWISH DAILY FORWARD, OZY, xoJANE, VELA MAGAZINE, and THE BILLFOLD, among others. When not writing, I also paint and my paintings have been published in a variety of art and literary magazines.
