Carly Bria Seidnitzer is a writer and constant daydreamer. She holds a B.A. in English from the University of Connecticut, and after a brief post-graduate stint in publishing, she took a leap of faith and returned to her alma mater for her M.A. in English to follow her passion for academia. While earning her M.A., Carly served as an instructor of First-Year Writing, where she taught many iterations of the introductory writing course. Her courses focused on helping students build the skills to develop their written voices, and encouraged creativity and writing fearlessly.

As someone who proudly admits to being a perpetual student herself, Carly also earned a Certificate in Creative Writing from Fairfield University, where she studied Milton’s Paradise Lost and worked on a collection of poems from Eve’s perspective in the Garden of Eden. Carly is the author of poems “Praying” (Poetry Leaves), “Winter Elegy,” “Pond,” and “Extended Release Renga,” the latter three of which were published by Local Gems Press. She is currently working on a collection of narrative essays, and an amble examining encounters with birch trees.

She lives on the southern Connecticut coast with her husband and her rabbit, both of whom she loves more than anything.
