Each student will receive both a print and digital copy of the literary journal. INSTRUCTOR BIO: Alexandra DiFazio - Writer, Editor, Publisher I began my writing career 26 years ago while an undergrad, with my own arts and culture column at Time Warner-owned Digital City for several years. I was studying at UCLA with a major in English Literature and minor in Early Childhood Education, but work took me in a different direction as a screenwriter and film journalist for the next decade. I became managing editor at a film magazine and then moved into books as a developmental editor, both at a publishing house and my own company, Madame Literary. After 15 years as an editor and ghostwriter, I began a small publishing house and published our first book in 2022. I continue to work as a freelance writer and editor. I moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles in late 2019 with my husband Peter, a writer and English professor, and our daughter, Asher Jane, who is a rising second grader at EdVentures.
