A firm believer in the healing powers of storytelling, Francesca has spent more than a decade in the nonprofit and organized labor sectors helping marginalized peoples tell their stories. She is recently returned from London where she received her MFA in Creative Writing from Kingston University. Before that she worked as a political organizer for a nurses union in Washington, DC, advocating for universal healthcare and patient rights. She is thrilled to be back in her adopted home of Philadelphia where she earned her BA in English and Philosophy from La Salle University. In her spare time she can be found hammering away at her computer keyboard trying to pull pretty words out of it and enjoying Lorenzo’s pizza. Email Francesca at [email protected].
