Sara Whitestone is a writer, photographer, and teacher. In exchange for instruction in English, her students at John Jay College in NYC introduce her to the mysteries of the world. Whitestone discovers writing through travel. Her works appear in book anthologies and many popular and literary magazines including The Portland Review, Word Riot, Piedmont Virginian, and Literary Traveler. Her current short project is about her search for writing and healing, and her book-in-continual-progress is a fictional autobiography.
