Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference Fellow 2019
About Susanne Brent
Born and raised in Chicago, Susanne Brent moved to Colorado after high school and practiced being a hippie before earning a journalism degree from Metropolitan State University in Denver. She then moved to the small desert town of Coolidge, Arizona, to work on a weekly newspaper. Missing the big city lights, Brent moved to Phoenix where she wrote on a freelance basis for a variety of publications including The Arizona Republic. She recently had a short story Hunger Pains in the online journal HCE Review from Dublin, Ireland which makes her feel very European. Brent has been meeting in a Writer’s Inspiration Group for the past thirteen years and hopes to encourage others to write freely, without worry of critique. She also writes a blog and can be found at https://thatsnotmytable.wordpress.com/.
