Hannah Garner is a Brooklyn-based writer who has taught the pleasures of great prose in high school English classes and university writing workshops. After graduating from Haverford College with a BA in Comparative Literature, she worked in the contemporary art world before plunging back into academia, first at the School of Visual Arts for an MA in Critical Theory, then at Rutgers University, where she completed an MA in English Literature. Her academic love of serpentine Victorian sentences was what brought her to Rutgers, but the rewards of teaching university writing there sent her back into the world as a teacher. She loves using writing to help her students connect to the stories of their lives. When not teaching, Hannah writes fiction and criticism and travels, as often as she can, back to France, which was her first home.
Hannah’s college essay waxed lyrical about her cello and wanderlust: in retrospect it was a bit too dreamy.
