Commonplace

seeking the story in the ordinary

Dina L. Relles lives and writes in rural Pennsylvania. She has a B.A. in Ethics & Political Philosophy from Brown University, a J.D. from Fordham Law School, and is a mother of four. Dina writes creative nonfiction, edits Proximity Magazine’s blog, TRUE, and is a prose poetry reader for Pithead Chapel. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, Atticus Review, Brevity’s Blog, matchbook literary magazineRiver TeethRise Up Review, and Full Grown People, among others, and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She’s slowly penning her first book—a collection of short, fragmented prose, and otherwise spends her time winding along country roads with the music too loud, turning strangers into something more familiar, reading old letters, and conjuring synonyms for the color yellow.
