Hi! I’m Ezra, a native Philadelphian and full time graduate student getting my MFA in Creative Writing at Temple University. I value hard work, the importance of failure, and creativity. I’m also an advocate for mental wellness, youth literacy, homelessness and empathetic dialogue. My mother was a journalist for the Philadelphia Inquirer and my father a teacher in the NYC public school system. I spent a year of service teaching English in Akko, Israel and believe in the power of storytelling, in all its forms. When I'm not reading or writing, I enjoy playing tennis or drinking coffee over a game of backgammon.
