CREATIVE WRITING

If you're interested in creative writing, I'm teaching several different workshops in the spring and fall semesters at the Berkeley Adult School. (https://bas.berkeleyschools.net/) These workshops are open at all adults, anywhere, and held via Zoom. They are affordably priced, too. You'll find the descriptions, dates, and costs on the online catalog for the Berkeley Adult School

I've loved writing and reading all my life. Back in the 1990s, I published two paperback books, Elysian Fields and Transient Ways. They are pretty hard to find, but I still have a couple copies. I earned an MFA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, and have been publishing short stories in online journals over the years. 

Here are a few:

  1. "Lose Your Soul" Columbia Journal
  2. "The Company of Strangers" Wordrunner E-Chapbooks
  3. "Little Captain" Gravel Magazine
  4. "Follow Your Bliss" Tampa Review Online
This video is back to the 1990s! It's a reading of one of my poems, "A Livid Power," in the Touch of a Poet Open Mic series in Berkeley, back when I had dropped out of school and was hoping trains around the country: https://www.berkeleycitizen.org/poetry/poet2JessicaEricaHahn.htm
