Amber Ruth Paulen ❦ Writer and Educator

Amber with friend.

I am a writer, an educator and a copyeditor who lives on my family’s dairy farm in rural Michigan. After years of living in and traveling through other continents and states, I'm pursuing the art of nurturing a plot of soil to grow flowers and food. I graduated with an MFA in fiction from Columbia University in NYC and am writing a multi-generational novel about the struggles to keep one family farm running and the costs of inheritance. My writing has been published around the internet and in print and was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. I teach writing and reading and copyedit for the UN.

Here is my Résumé.
