Molly Thornton's first manuscript is a cross-genre memoir driven by a constrained form and a process of becoming. The Seattle Review of Books had the following to say about an excerpt she read at Lit Crawl: "When regarded singly, each of Thornton’s vignettes was a burnished little gem of economy. Taken in aggregate, they formed something much deeper and complex. If they are eventually published in a collection as beautiful and unique as Thornton’s prose, this book could really prove to be a delight."
Her poetry chapbook Daisy Chains was a finalist in the 2016 Gazing Grain Chapbook Contest. She is a graduate of the Artist Trust LitEdge program, a former co-coordinator of Seattle's Lit Crawl, and a Lambda Literary Emerging Writers Fellow.
