Danielle Sosin is the author of The Long-Shining Waters, winner of the 2011 Milkweed National Fiction Prize. The book, which MN Monthly has called “The first great novel about Lake Superior… and its many ghosts,“ is a finalist for the upcoming MN Book Awards. The New York Times Book Review says this about Garden Primitives, her collection of stories, published by Coffee House Press, 2000. “Like a camera’s aperture set to blink just long enough to let in the exact amount of light for a perfect picture…[Sosin] captures unexpected moments of beauty and clarity.”
Danielle’s fiction has been featured in the Alaska Quarterly Review and has been recorded for National Public Radio. She is the recipient of numerous grants, awards and fellowships. A native of Minneapolis MN, she now lives in Duluth, where she works part time with children, and as a landscape/gardener.
