Genevieve DeGuzman is a poet and writer of fiction, writing in the borderlands of the literary and speculative.
She is a recipient of fellowships and grants from PEN America, Literary Arts (Booth Writers’ Fund), Artist Relief, Authors League, Cuttyhunk Island Writers’ Residency, Vermont Studio Center (James Merrill Fellowship), Can Serrat, Tokyo Foundation, and J. Paul Getty Foundation. Most recently, Genevieve was awarded the 2022 Oregon Literary Fellowship.
As a poet, Genevieve has earned two nominations for the Best New Poets anthology and won the Atticus Review contest selected by Roberto Carlos Garcia. She has also been a finalist for prizes by Puerto del Sol, River Styx International, and Split This Rock. In 2021, she was a featured poet for the Poetry Moves program run by Artstra in collaboration with C-TRAN and the Clark County Arts Commission in Washington state.
Genevieve was the co-founder of Night Owls Press, where she ran its imprint from 2011 to 2017. She also worked in international development for over a decade, writing on issues related to microfinance, trade, and business. Her research appears in economics journals and books from Anthem Press, Edward Elgar Press, and Palgrave MacMillan. She is also the co-author of Working in the UnOffice, one of the first books on coworking and the sharing economy, which was featured in CNN Money, Fast Company, Financial Times, Greater Good, North Bay Bohemian, and VentureBeat.
Genevieve was born in the Philippines and raised near San Diego. She attended Columbia University where she earned her undergraduate and master’s degrees. A nomad with a homebody soul, she has traveled to over twenty countries in Asia, Latin America, and Europe, and was a bona fide expat before settling in the Pacific Northwest. She now resides in Portland, Oregon where she lives the dream of the Nineties: forest bathing, bike riding, and hygge perfecting.
