Michelle Niemann discovered her love for consulting with writers one-on-one about their work in progress while teaching in the Writing Center at the University of Wisconsin, where she was a graduate student. After earning her PhD in English literature in 2014, for two years Michelle served as a postdoc at UCLA, where she co-edited The Routledge Companion to the Environmental Humanities (2017) with Ursula K. Heise and Jon Christensen. Having grown up in Fort Wayne, she moved to Indy in 2016 and now works with scholars and writers as an independent writing consultant and editor.
Michelle’s poems have appeared in RHINO, After Hours, and Cannot Exist, and she has been awarded writing residencies at Ragdale, Ucross, and Caldera for creative prose work. Her scholarly articles have been published in Victorian Poetry, the Journal of Modern Literature, and Modernism/modernity.
