Jade Sanchez-Ventura is a writer and radical educator and though she has ties to many far flung countries, she has always made her home in Brooklyn, New York. She works in memoir, and her personal essays have drawn the attention of Bitch Media’s Popaganda podcast, in which she was featured, as well as earning her the Slice Literary Conference “Bridging the Gap” award. She has been published across an array of online literary journals, and in print with Seal Press. Her work has been awarded by the Disquiet Literary Conference, and she was named a Hertog Fellow. She is a columnist at MUTHA Magazine, where she champions a fiery re-imagining of parenting. As an educator, she is very good at being continually wowed by her students and their words on the page. She does this, and other work, with the Brooklyn Free School.
