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 is a creative nonfiction writer, Senior Blog Editor for Proximity Magazine’s TRUE, and a prose poetry reader for Pithead Chapel. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, Atticus Review, Brevity’s Blog, Barrelhouse online, CHEAP POP, matchbook literary magazineMonkeybicycle, Paper Darts, River TeethRise Up Review, and Full Grown People, among others, and her piece “Where We Land” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. She’s slowly penning her first book—a memoir in micro-prose, and otherwise spends her time winding along country roads with the music too loud, turning strangers into something more familiar, reading old letters, photographing barns, and conjuring synonyms for the color yellow.
