Jon Gingerich

Winner of the Post’s 2020 Great American Fiction Contest, Jon Gingerich began his writing career at 25 working for weekly newspapers before moving to New York to become editor of a business magazine. But, he says, “fiction has always been my passion.” He received an MFA in creative writing from The New School, and since 2015 has been a fiction instructor at the Gotham Writer’s Workshop in New York City. His work has appeared in a number of literary journals — including Pleiades, Grist, The Oyez Review, Stand Magazine, and Helix Magazine — and he recently finished writing a novel. For more, visit
