I write Short Stories.
I currently live in Fredonia, New York. I am also a parent.
Sarah Gerkensmeyer teaches creative writing at SUNY Fredonia in Fredonia, New York, where she lives with her husband and two young sons (Simon, four years old and Charlie, one and a half). She has spent time during two consecutive winters at Ragdale and was awarded a waiter scholarship to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference in Vermont. She received her MFA from Cornell University in 2004. She is at work on her first novel.
Sarah was formally presented at the Pen Parentis Andaz Literary Salon at its new location in the glamorous Andaz Wall Street (private dining room at Wall&Water) on September 11th, 2012, alongside Pen Parentis readers John Reed, Theodore Hamm, and Renee Steinke.
