Amber Ruth Paulen ❦ Writer and Educator

Amber with friend.

I am a writer, an educator and sometimes copyeditor. I recently returned to my family’s dairy farm in rural Michigan after years of living in and traveling through other continents and states. I graduated with an MFA in fiction from Columbia University in NYC and am writing a multi-generational novel-in-stories about the struggles to keep one family farm running and the costs of an inheritance. My writing has been published around the internet and in print and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. I teach freshman composition, work as a writing consultant and grow food. Here is my Résumé.
