As a Bay Area fiction writer and educator, Robyn has spent the past seventeen years teaching creative writing to kids, college students, and adults.

With youth, her work has been in public school settings, most recently as a San Francisco WritersCorp Writer in Residence at a school that serves the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood, where she led comic and graphic novel writing workshops to elementary school students.

Robyn is the August artist-in-residence for the Newnan ArtRez program. Newnan ArtRez offers residencies to emerging and mid-career artists from various disciplines so they can pursue their art away from everyday pressures while engaging in community experiences that enrich Newnan and Coweta County’s cultural environment.
