Currently the Editorial Director at Sunday Forever’s editorial venture, The Sunday Issue, I fell in love with nonfiction writing during a semester spent studying Feminism and The Personal Essay at the University of Pittsburgh. Never before allowed to compose essays in the first person, I felt seen and heard once I was allowed to write the single letter, “I,” followed by a thought of my own. I spent the next three years as a nonfiction writing major studying the words and worlds of my heroes including Joan Didion, Virginia Woolf, Richard Rodriguez, Naomi Wolf and Annie Dillard, a group that has now expanded to include Ruth Reichly, Roxan Gay, Sloane Crosely and Dani Shapiro. Writing was (and still is) my oxygen, my therapist, my shelter, and my memory.
