Poet. Writer. Writing Coach. Reader. Since childhood, Dawn has been fascinated by words and the paths they take to form stories both fictional and true.
Dawn has worked as an advertising copywriter and freelancer before working in the admission office of an independent school and as a middle-school English teacher. She has also worked as an adjunct, taught ESL and middle-school writing workshops, and as the associate director of a M.A./M.F.A. Creative Writing program and assistant to the President at Wilkes University. She is always ready for a road trip to give or attend a reading. She loves live music and to talk poetry and writing, swap recommendations for movies and books, and share about her love-dislike relationship with running. She has recently left the 9-5 world and has jumped back into the self-employed writing world.
