Seth Fischer

Welcome students!

I look forward to working with you.Here are a few things about me that might help you get to know me a bit better:

  1. My passion is writing. It’s what gets me up in the morning. I’ve published fiction and nonfiction widely, I’ve been nominated for Best American Essays, Best Sex Writing, and twice for the Pushcart Prize, and I’ve edited the literary websites The Rumpus and The Splinter Generation. I also have an MFA in Creative Writing from AULA. My writing focuses on politics, LGBT issues, war and coming-of-age narratives.
  2. I have a social science background. I received an MA in Political Science from Syracuse, where my research focused on the intersection between war and civic engagement. I can help with questions about research design, quantitative and qualitative methods, statistics and math.
  3. I worked for a Congresswoman, for nonprofits, as a house painter and as a freelancer. In other words, I’ve worked quite a bit in “the real world,” so I can also help with professional issues, like resume-building and job searching.
