Lenore Weiss

Author's Bio

A child of cities, born of Hungarian-American parents on the east coast, I grew up as an adult on the west coast, and now getting southern exposure in Louisiana. I’m grateful for public institutions where I became conversant with culture. I’ve worked as a breakfast cook, secretary, journalist, writing consultant, technical writer, and web content manager occupying a front row seat at the development of the computer industry. Technical writing has taught me accuracy, editing, and interviewing skills. Working as a Web Content Manager honed my ability to work collaboratively. I'm interested in the conflagration of language and technology and enjoy exploring newer forms of prose poetry. I like stories about real people. The word has always been my first love.
