Becky Sernett

Becky Sernett has been writing fiction since she was in high school, crafting tales based on vocabulary lists, and brainstorming plot twists in study halls. After college, she found herself working as a journalist, telling other people’s stories rather than her own, and a deep respect for the power of nonfiction storytelling developed. Now she blends her expertise in journalism with the techniques of creative writing to help other writers discover and tell their own true stories. She also leads creative nonfiction workshops at the Downtown Writer’s Center in Syracuse.
