Today we announce the departure of Tracy O’Neill, Editor-in-Chief, from Epiphany. Tracy O’Neill served as Editor-in-Chief for three issues of the magazine, beginning in Fall 2017. In her tenure, she published writers who went on to become National Book Award Finalists and 5 Under 35 National Book Foundation Honorees, to win Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Awards, among other honors, and to sign first book deals. In 2018, she helped establish the inaugural Breakout 8 Writers Prize honoring eight outstanding student writers from across the country in conjunction with the Authors Guild. Winners received publication in Epiphany’s Breakout Eight special issue, membership to the Authors Guild, and a year-long mentorship with Tracy, among other prizes.
 
As Editor-in-Chief Tracy brought tremendous energy and dynamism to the magazine. We are truly grateful for her leadership and her commitment to nurturing emerging writers and opening opportunities for collaboration within the community-at-large. We wish her the best of luck on her new endeavors and we look forward to carrying her spirit forward into the future of the magazine. Please stay tuned for more information on our spring/summer issue.
