About Stacey

Who is Stacey Brook, really? How long do you have?



Stacey Brook is a writer who spends far too much time thinking about what she will eat for dinner. Her work has been published in the New Yorker, USA Today, TIME, BuzzFeed, The Hairpin and more, and her essay “Anxiety Order” was awarded Honorable Mention in the 2011 Writer’s Digest Annual Writing Competition (Memoir/Personal Essay Category). She has also performed excerpts from many of her personal essays at the Paragraph reading series at NYC’s KGB Bar, and imparts writing advice to teenagers — and their parents — as Founder and Chief Advisor of College Essay Advisors. Stacey lives and works in New York, and in addition to her writerly exploits she has been known to execute a near-perfect karaoke rendition of George Michael’s “Freedom 90.”
