CL 617-B

Jennifer Lee is interested in the essay in its many forms—personal, critical, nature, lyric, list. Her writing has appeared in Hotel Amerika, Mid-American Review, Critical Quarterly, and others. In 2016 she was awarded an Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship, and in 2017 her essay “Abbatoir Blues” won the Jellybucket award for Creative Nonfiction. Her most recent courses include The LyricEssay and Queer Autobiography, as well as a section of Readings in Contemporary Nonfiction that focuses on writing about/on the body and the environment. This spring, as part of the Pitt Prison Education Program, she taught Autobiography & the Creative Impulse at SCI-Somerset, where Pitt students and incarcerated students read and wrote autobiography together. Jennifer Lee is also the co-creator of Bloomfield Yoga, where she teaches breath and movement to her fellow human beings. She is currently at work on an essay about the painter Seraphine Louis.
