Meet some of our coaches


Semilore: I'm an English PhD student and Presidential Fellow at Brown. As an undergrad, I went to Stanford where I earned my Bachelor of Arts with Honors in African & African-American Studies and Comparative Literature. When I’m not busy in my department, I work at the Writing Center as a Writing Associate, and love helping students learn how to express themselves!




Reina: I am a playwright and educator. My plays, which usually contain magic and sometimes contain science, have been seen across the country, including at Rorschach Theatre in DC, the Vortex in Austin, and the 2013 NNPN National New Play Showcase. I am a Michener Fellow, winner of the 2014 KCACTF TYA Prize, finalist for the Terrence McNally Prize and the recipient of an Interact 20/20 Commission.


Ellen: I'm a full-time writer of fiction and essays who's passionate about teaching and mentoring. I studied Comparative Literature and Creative Writing at Princeton University, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with High Honors, then went on to get my MFA in Fiction at Brooklyn College. As a Princeton-in-Asia fellow, I taught literature at a Thai university before returning to the states to teach writing in a college setting. My work appears regularly in magazines and journals, and has been recognized with national fellowships, government grants, and literary awards. I love helping students express their stories and selves on the page!



Tyné: I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees at Dartmouth College, where I studied the role of music in cultures around the world. Since 2010, I have released five full-length albums, and have performed across the U.S. and internationally. The arts have opened doors to some exciting experiences, like performing at the Kennedy Center and delivering two TEDx Talks. I love guiding students in crafting their story and finding their unique voice!
