Eddie Chuculate is Creek and Cherokee Indian and originally from Muskogee, Oklahoma. The first story from his collection Cheyenne Madonna won a PEN/O. Henry Prize and was selected by juror Ursula K. Le Guin as her favorite of that year. He won a Wallace Stegner Creative Writing Fellowship at Stanford University and earned a master’s degree at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Chuculate began a journalism career at age 16, while still in high school, and he went on to write and edit for several metro daily newspapers. He has also picked pecans, moved furniture, worked as a day laborer, received food stamps, and sold his plasma. Eddie now resides in downtown Minneapolis.
