Jackie Hedeman holds a BA from Princeton University and an MFA from The Ohio State University. She was a 2018 Lambda Literary Emerging Writers Retreat Fellow, a 2019 Artist INC Live Lawrence fellow, and has been a resident writer at Sundress Academy for the Arts. Jackie is a 2019-2020 Charlotte Street Foundation Studio Resident.

Jackie lives in Kansas where she writes grants by day and everything but poetry by night. (She thinks poets are basically wizards.) She is currently at work on The Moscow Rules, a memoir charting the parallel threads of a lifelong fascination with the Cambridge Spies and a dawning awareness of her own queer sexuality.
