|Author. Performer. Teacher.|
words. words. words.
Ericka Lutz spends most of her time working with words.
Her novel, The Edge of Maybe is forthcoming from Last Light Studio books in 2012. Her award-winning short stories and personal essays have appeared in many books, anthologies, and journals, magazines, newspapers, and on the web. She is the author of seven commercial nonfiction books. She was a founding editor and writes a popular monthly column, "Solo," at the online literary magazine Literary Mama.
Ericka combines years of formal theater training with interests in performance art / life art to create solo performances called "fearless," "quirky," "witty," "honest," and "entertaining." She is currently workshopping/developing her solo show, A Widow's To-Do List: Who knew that Love and Death came with a side order of So-Much-to-Do?
Ericka teaches writing privately and at UC Berkeley. Since 1990, she has edited and consulted with writers about their writing and the writing process.
She lives in Oakland, California with her daughter and Lola Dog, the one and only ripple-rump retriever.
