Sarah is a poet, essayist, and engineer. She grew up a daughter of the American South, but somehow ended up in Israel after job-hopping across the Americas and Europe. Sarah graduated with an engineering degree from Georgia Tech and received a MBA from The University of California, Berkeley.
Despite both, Sarah completed a MFA in Creative Writing from Bennington College in January 2009. She currently divides time between New York City and Israel.
Her manuscript Bathsheba Transatlantic was selected by contest judge Garrett Hongo as winner of the 2009 Levine Prize in Poetry.
