Hired as the director of marketing for a top literary quarterly right out of college, Sophia Ross is passionate about contemporary literature, clean design, and advocating for young women in the workplace. During her undergraduate years, she worked freelance as a social media coordinator for small businesses and nonprofit organizations, and spent two years editing small print and digital publications. She also served as a resident assistant on a floor of thirty young women.
In her spare time, Sophia works on her own fiction writing. Most recently, she was short-listed for Room’s fiction contest, accepted to and attended the Banff Centre of Arts and Creativity’s Emerging Writers Intensive, and long-listed for Ruminate's William Van Dyke Short Story Prize. She also regularly contributes staff picks to Image’s e-newsletter ImageUpdate.
She lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband, Thomas Eckert.
