Amber Ruth Paulen · Writer and Educator

I am a writer, educator and sometimes copyeditor currently based in Inwood, Manhattan. Before I moved to New York I lived in Italy, and before that I traveled. But despite my many changes of location, writing has been a steady. I am finishing my MFA in fiction at Columbia and working on a novel of linked short stories set on a family dairy farm similar to the one I grew up on in rural West Michigan. My writing has been published around the web and in print and and I teach undergraduate writing at Columbia.
