Hello and welcome to jeannievanasco.com, my home on the web. A few things about me: I'm a writer and an assistant professor of creative writing. I live in Baltimore with my partner, Chris, and our cats, Flannery and Bishop. Sometimes I collage for fun.
Before I taught college students, I had lots of other jobs. I cleaned motel rooms, waitressed the night-shift, conducted research for a documentary television series about media accountability, worked as a literary magazine editor, helped a poet translate her work from Arabic into English, and co-managed a citizen journalism project based in Sudan.
If you would like to say hi (and I hope you do), you can reach me at jeannie (dot) vanasco (at) gmail (dot) com.
