So it is official! I am an editor and writer at Germ Magazine! I work in the Germ U department. I have two jobs: format editing and writing articles. My forthcoming works are scholarship spotlights and a feature series on women’s colleges.

Germ Magazine was first fictionalized in All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven and then later created as a real publication. All the Bright Places will be adapted into a movie as well. You can read about it here.

About L. N. Holmes

L. N. Holmes, author, writer, editor, Nicole Gentles, autumn, Salem College

L. N. Holmes (Photo by Nicole Gentles.)

LeeAnn Nichole (Holmes) Adams writes under the pseudonym, L. N. Holmes. She is the author of Space, Collisions, a micro-chapbook published by Ghost City Press. Her fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction have appeared in literary journals and magazines such as Newfound, Barren Magazine, Crack the SpineVestal Review, and F(r)iction, among others. Her longer projects are mostly works-in-progress. In addition to her creative writing, she’s written many book reviews, literary journal reviews, interviews, news articles, and more. She currently volunteers as senior fiction editor for Green Briar Review.

Short Work | Books

Graduating from Salem College in 2013, Holmes received a Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing with minors in English and History. Later she attended Creighton University, where she received her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing in 2017. In addition to formal education, she’s actively sought out other opportunities to learn and has attended writing conferences, workshops, and readings in many different states.

She has been honored with the 2012 Katherine B. Rondthaler Award for Poetry, the 2013 Salem College President’s Prize for Creative Writing, and a first place for nonfiction in a literary journal from the North Carolina College Media Association in 2013. She was also a half-fellow in the Creighton University MFA program and her poem, “War Song,” was long-listed for the 2016 Wisehouse International Poetry Award. Her flash fiction, “Pheonix Fire Fight,” won the April 2018 contest at Apparition Literary Magazine.

A native of Ohio, Holmes currently lives in Louisiana. She’s married to her wonderful husband, Collin, and has three furry pets—a dog, Cattleya, and two cats, Rex and Hadassah. She’s a Christian who believes in protecting the planet, equal pay for women, and loving your neighbor. You can follow her on Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram, and LinkedIn—but she’s the most active on Twitter, where she tweets about literary stuff and video games.
