mia mercado by chase castor

Mia Mercado likes to write funny things that make you think or funny things that make you not think or thinky things that make you have feelings.

Her work has been featured in places like The New Yorker, The New York Times, Bustle, McSweeney’s, Reductress, BUST, Gizmodo, The Hairpin, Hallmark Cards, and a bottle she threw in the river when she was 9.

She has won ~*awards*~ and been talked about by the press but it’s whatever.

She grew up in Wisconsin and probably says “bag” wrong. Currently, she lives in Kansas City, working on freelance writing and self-control while eating chips.

She wrote this in third person to talk about herself in an acceptable way.
