FRANCESCA PADILLA

About Francesca

I’m a queer Dominican-American fiction writer and non-profit professional born/raised in New York City and currently based out of Rochester, NY. My debut novel, What’s Coming to Me, is forthcoming from Soho Teen August 2, 2022. I’m grateful to have received a Walter Dean Myers Grant from We Need Diverse Books, and more recently artist residencies with the Studios of Key West and Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA). I have a BA in Creative Writing from SUNY Purchase College.

By day, I work on community engagement in health & human services. My job has mainly involved knowing which, where, and how services are available and how they can effectively connect to one another in the state of New York. If you must know more, see me on LinkedIn.

You can find me tweeting about books, astrology, mental health, New York State, occasional dumb sh*t, and health & human services @frannypadilla
