Erin Strubbe is writer based in Northern California. She studied English creative writing and received a minor in women’s studies from Mills College. Currently, she works as a news writer for FOX40 News in Sacramento, and interns at Diablo Magazine.
Her fiction, essays, and articles have appeared in The Red Wheelbarrow, The Walrus, Mills Academic Research Journal, The Campanil, and more. Among her favorite topics to write about are the issues of identity, (in)justice, and belonging that people grapple with from childhood to adulthood, as well as the pains and passions of growing up, and kindling the spark of magic that lives in all of us into a bright, burning flame. She loves speculative fiction of all kinds and is particularly influenced by writers like Octavia Butler, Garth Nix, and Kelly Link. She is currently working on a young adult novella and a collection of short stories.
She is a novelist, a journalist, a communicator, and a storyteller in equal measure, and she aims to do work that can make this world just a little bit better than it was before.
