and from Salon NYC, fellow New School Alums…

Caroline Berger has an MFA from The New School in New York City where she currently teaches creative writing online. She was most appalled by a recent course evaluation response in which a student claimed that what would make the course better is if there were “an introductory lecture by the professor videotaped and then webcast.” Caroline enjoys teaching in her pajamas with bad daytime TV on in the background. Her short prose has appeared most recently in La Petite Zine, Pindeldyboz, and Barrow Street. She was a 2004 Artist in Residence at The Artists’ Enclave at I-Park, a 2006 juror for the Scholastic Writing Awards, and is currently a second year mentor for Girls Write Now, a nonprofit volunteer mentoring organization that has been matching bright, creative teenage girls from New York City’s public high schools with professional women writers in the community since 1998

She is also the Development Director for the Program Board of Girls Write Now, so please give her some money because it will make her job easier. For the past five years, she has co-curated Sunday Salon New York. For the past three years, she has not slept. In theory, she is working on a short prose collection, a novel, a children’s book about ethnically diverse feet, and a memoir about her spunky little German grandmother. She congratulates Sunday Salon Chicago on their illustrious first birthday, wishes for many more, and is pleased to announce the latest addition to the Sunday Salon family: Sunday Salon Nairobi. Sunday Salon Antarctica is sure to follow.

Rebecca Leece studied at the New School MFA program and the Harvard Extension School. She’s taught at Parsons School of Design and City University of New York. Rebecca has also worked at the publications BOMB, Esquire, and was the prose editor of Lit Magazine. She recently left her teaching position at CUNY to write full-time, focusing on short stories, essays, and children’s literature. Currently, she’s enamored with Marcel Proust.
