I’m Blair Hurley, and I’m a writer and college instructor of creative writing. A graduate of Princeton University (B.A.) and NYU (M.F.A.), I have stories published or forthcoming in West Branch, Washington Square, Day One, The Butter, Hayden’s Ferry Review, and elsewhere. I’m a winner of a 2018 Pushcart Prize, and my debut novel is forthcoming with WW Norton and company. I teach at McMaster University, Grubstreet and the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies.

I offer in-depth manuscript critiques, line-by-line story editing, and private writing coaching. Click “services” to learn about the many ways I help writers, from query letter assistance to proofreading and more. Contact me today about preparing your manuscript for success.
