Adrienne

Bio

When Adrienne was seven years old, she published her first book, The Pretty Girl Who Was Smart and the Beautiful Girl Who Was Stupid, and she has had ink on her fingers ever since.  Adrienne attended Princeton, majoring in English and creative writing and graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.  Her thesis on riddles and nonsense verse received the Thomas B.  Wanamaker English Language Thesis Prize, and she was awarded several poetry prizes for her creative work.  After Princeton, she headed to the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was a Teaching-Writing Fellow.  She is now a PhD candidate in English at Harvard, where she studies poetry and history of the language.  In addition to juggling her creative and scholarly writing, Adrienne has worked as an editor of fiction books and business books.

Adrienne has developed creative writing programs for students and has edited many application essays.  Adrienne delights in working with students, writers, scholars, and professionals to help them refine and develop their craft.

In her spare time, you can usually find her running, swimming, doing crossword puzzles, or playing Boggle – occasionally all at once.
