E.K. Keith is a teacher and a writer. She has an M.Ed and has taught for over 12 years. As a consultant, she has worked with teachers to establish Writer’s Workshop in California, Colorado, Minnesota, and Texas and she enjoys this work immensely. She believes that being a writer and a teacher is about making good decisions that move the writing - and the teaching - forward every day. When she is not teaching, E.K. writes and performs poetry in San Francisco. She is also one of the founding organizers of Poems Under the Dome, an annual celebration of National Poetry Month inside San Francisco’s City Hall.
