Zulema Renee Summerfield
I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, and my work has appeared in a number of literary journals. My first novel, Every Other Weekend, will be published by Little, Brown in spring 2018. My book of flash fiction, Everything Faces All Ways At Once, is available from Fourteen Hills Press.
In addition to my writing practice, I am also an educator and creative coach. I am deeply committed to the act of writing as a process of healing/liberation, and believe that everyone should have access to the transformative power of writing. I have extensive experience teaching and coaching, and have worked in a number of settings, from non-profits to classrooms to private homes. I enjoy the process of teaching and sharing, whether in front of a classroom, online, or across the kitchen table. I dedicate a part of my practice to supporting people on their writing journey.
I am also a devoted auntie and, I've been told, a pretty good dancer. I currently live in Portland, Oregon, where I am at work on a collection of short stories and a new novel.
