Rosebud Ben-Oni

Rosebud Ben-Oni has been a Rackham Merit Fellow, a Rudin Scholar, a Leopold Schepp Scholar and the recipient of a Horace Goldsmith Grant, given so she could complete her first novel The Annex Jew, which deals with her experiences as a Jew of mixed race who survives the bombing of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2002. She is currently finishing up her novel and has had recent poems in Arts & Letters, The Rialto (UK), and The Texas Poetry Review. Aside from writing, she loves ballet, basketball, and any excuse to go clubbing in the middle of the week.
