Molly is an award-winning writer and writing coach. Most recently, she received the 2016 Steve Kowit Poetry Prize, and her winning poem is included in the 2016-2017 San Diego Poetry Annual. Molly was a Fellow at the Fishtrap Writers Conference in Oregon where she worked with poet Naomi Shihab Nye, and she received the Dibner Fellowship for Fiction in Maine. She’s published a number of magazine and newspaper pieces and has taught writing and literature in universities on both coasts and in workshops for adult writers at her Skylark Writing Studio on Whidbey Island in Washington. She agrees with author Louis Auchincloss that a writer’s life is his or her capital, and she’s tried to gather as much of that capital as possible. Molly’s jazz novel, Listen, was published in 2003 and her one-woman show, On Our Way to Somewhere, in 2002. She is currently engaged in both writing and painting in San Diego. Molly blogs about jazz and art at jazzycookie.wordpress.com and artulips.wordpress.com.
