About Jessica Kanzler

Jessica Kanzler is a transgender woman who studies and writes about the intersections of rhetoric, digital media, and creative narrative. She has taught rhetoric and composition courses for four years, holds an MA in Rhetoric Writing and Digital Media Studies, and is self-proclaimed expert in all things fantasy. Her humor writing is wildly read through her own blog, which has had a large readership for many years, and she is able to negotiate the differences between academic writing, digital writing, and creative writing well through an interdisciplinary approach. She writes about identity, sub-cultures, and community through her own experiences.
