What’s this queer’s deal?

In 2018, they were a semi-finalist for StandUp NBC.

Max also writes prose and poetry, for those who prefer not to leave the house. They’ve been published in CutBank: All Accounts and Mixtures, Sonora Review (forthcoming), Storm Cellar Quarterly Review, and #Trans: An Anthology, among other places. Most recently, Max was awarded the 2017-2018 Made at Hugo House Fellowship. They received their B.A. in Creative Writing from Seattle University in 2015, and graduated with Departmental Honors. When they’re not writing, Max likes to sing and worry.
