ZONDE ZINKE
May 2008

Knoxville, TN—\”I was born in New York City in 1974 and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997.  I spent close to a decade in community service, working as a child advocate, a homeless shelter case manager, a domestic violence counselor and a progressive services support provider for people with mental disabilities.  I began writing in 2001 and am grateful for support from The Writing Seminars program at Johns Hopkins University, The University of Tennessee, The Eastern Frontier Educational Foundation and The Jerome Foundation.  I\’ve won a John C. Hodges short-story prize and am currently working on a collection of short stories.  In the fall of 2008, I will begin a PhD program in Creative Writing at the University of Tennessee.  I live in Knoxville, TN with my partner, also a writer, Otis Haschemeyer, and our good old dog, Zuka.\”
