Amber Ruth Paulen · Writer and Educator

I am a writer, educator and sometimes copyeditor living on the northern tip of Manhattan, near a forest and a salt marsh. I’m finishing my MFA in fiction at Columbia and writing a book of linked short stories mostly set on a dairy farm similar to my family’s farm in rural West Michigan (which my youngest brother and dad are still running). I teach undergraduate writing at Columbia, and here are some pieces that I’ve written.
