Erica W. Jamieson writes fiction, creative memoir, and personal essay. She is wild about encouraging new writers to find their voice and to publish. She leads writing groups in essay and prompt writing. Most recently, during the quarantine, she facilitated zoom classes in flash memoir as well as a multigeneration writing group aimed at using prompt writing to start a conversation. It was loud and very emotional!
Erica was raised in the suburbs of Detroit. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Philosophy and obtained her Juris Doctorate at Pepperdine Law School. A dozen or so years ago, she cleaned out a closet in her home office and found dozens of stories that she had been working on for two decades. It came down to this: either burn all the pages or start taking herself seriously as a writer. It was a hot summer, and the risk of wildfire great, she had little choice but to keep writing.
Erica W. Jamieson lives in Los Angeles with her family and a Whoodle named Cleo.
