Rebekah Bergman writes: “I was a writing fellow and editor for The Indy. I married a fellow 2011 alum and after living in Brooklyn for seven years, we decided to return to Rhode Island to raise our family. I am very happy to have landed back in Providence and to get to know the city, this time as a parent and a novelist. In August Tin House published my debut novel, The Museum of Human History, a futuristic fairy tale that examines the burden of memory. It centers on a young girl who slips into a strange comatose state and stops physically aging and the host of characters who find themselves pulled to her. The very first seed for the book was a short story I wrote as part of my undergraduate thesis at Brown. I’m looking forward to celebrating the launch at a local independent bookstore before I head out on a book tour through the Northeast and West Coast. The book has received early praise from authors Kate Bernheimer, Tiffany Tsao, Allegra Hyde, and Samantha Hunt.”

Nick Carter writes: “I moved back to Providence to expand my small business, a clothing project called ASMR Homegoods. In February, my business and I received a $15,000 catalyst grant from the Providence-based nonprofit Design X RI. These funds are helping me design and create a new collection in my studio off Elmwood Ave. in South Providence and market to stores around the country and online. I am in the process of completing the collection and beginning to document it before its release. ASMR Homegoods is inspired by natural camouflage and decorative craft patterning; each piece is a 1-of-1 wearable monoprint, often made using bleach and dye on upcycled or deadstock garments. Each item is designed to create intimacy between the wearer and their own body while simultaneously confounding the eye of a surveiller. ASMR Homegoods can be found at and on instagram at”
