When she is not traveling the world, or dreaming of traveling, April Darcy is somewhere between Manhattan and her home in Jersey City. Currently a non-fiction MFA candidate at the Bennington Writing Seminars, April’s stories traverse the juxtaposition of her life at home, her life of world-wandering, and a deep interior life which she shares unabashedly. She splashes the environment of her writings with such subdued magic that, without a keen attention, one might not recognize that the veil she lifts off the world reveals not a mystical space, but one of striking, undeniable realism, all to further dredge up her sparkling wanderlust.
