about me


E.C. Barrett writes fiction, teaches creative writing, and is a freelance journalist.

In 2015, she was awarded first place in police/crime/court coverage by the New York Press Association for her January 2014 Ithaca Times cover story on the City of Ithaca’s contract negotiations with the police union.

Barrett earned a B.A. in Creative Writing from Wells College and M.A. in Social and Political Philosophy from Binghamton University. She attended Clarion West Writers Workshop in 2018 and was a 2019 Saltonstall Fellow. Her debut short story appeared in the March 2020 issue of Bourbon Penn and was named a top ten must-read for March by Tor.com.

Barrett built a house in the woods, with her craftsman partner, from trees they felled, milled, and raised by hand.
