Cade Mason

Cade Mason's debut collection Engine Running: Essays was a runner-up for the Ohio State University Press's Gournay Prize and was published by OSU's Mad Creek Books in Fall 2022 as part of their 21st Century Essays series. Through a variety of essay forms, his work--housed in DIAGRAM, Ninth Letter, Literary Hub, Creative Nonfiction, and elsewhere--frequently charts the landscape of his West Texas home, the portraiture and fracturing of family, and the investigation of queerness against expectations of masculinity. He studied writing at the University of North Texas in Denton and earned his M.A. in 2021. Today he lives in Dallas, teaching as a professor of English at Dallas College.
