Author: Vanessa Martir
Vanessa Mártir is a big-hearted, 1980s Bushwick-raised bocona learning the heartbeat of silence in the countryside of upstate NY; an oil-and-water combination of imposter syndrome, ambition, procrastination, certainty, insecurity and drive. Vanessa writes personal essays, memoir & novels, is a wanna be poet & playwright, and the creator of the Writing Our Lives Workshop and the Writing the Mother Wound Movement. Vanessa’s work has appeared in The NY Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Longreads, Poets & Writers, The Rumpus, the VONA/Voices Anthology, Dismantle, and the NYTimes Bestselling anthology Not That Bad, edited by Roxane Gay, among others. Vanessa has partnered with Tin House and The Rumpus to publish WOL alumni, and with Longreads and NYU's Latinx Project to publish Mother Wound essays. She has also served as guest editor of Aster(ix) and The James Franco Review. When she's not writing or teaching, you can find Vanessa hiking in the forest talking to trees and birds.
