Carter Greenbaum graduated summa cum laude from Princeton University with degrees in Sociology and Creative Writing. His thesis Dear Hunter won the Theodore Holmes Poetry Prize and the Yale Law School Short Story competition. He is also the recipient of the J. Wells Henderson Prize, the Isidore Brown Thesis Prize, the Isidore Brown Prize for Academic Achievement, The Howard Holtzmann Fellowship, and the Undergraduate Paper Prize from Law & Society Review. Carter is currently finishing his final year at Yale Law School while working on his debut novel, a murder mystery that deals with issues of privilege, elitism, ambition, and love. His favorite authors include Louise Gluck, Anne Carson, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Donna Tartt, Zia Haider Rahman, Vladimir Nabokov, and, of course, James Richardson, who taught him everything he knows about writing. He has been published in Prism Magazine, Nassau Literary Review, and the American Review of International Arbitration. Carter's ultimate ambition is to own a pet sloth.
