Hello! I’m Thalia Halloran. I’m a student at Duke University, where I am pursuing a BA in English with minors in Creative Writing and History. I love telling stories in any way I can—in my fiction, my stand-up comedy, and my audio work.

I have been writing since I was three, when my older sister taught me to read by drawing letters on a chalkboard easel. While none of those early manuscripts survived to the present, I’ve been busy in the meantime! In fall 2019, I was chosen as a student fellow for StudioDuke, an arts mentorship program that pairs students with alumni mentors to refine artistic projects over the course of one academic year. I’m also the co-founder of Duke University Stand-up Troupe, the first stand-up comedy group at Duke. I’m currently working on writing a novel about doomsday cults, misogyny, and a very bored pit bull; I am also producing a podcast series about the meaning, ethics, and pursuit of happiness. You can see my publications and awards here.
