Susannah Carlson has been published numerous times in literary journals, (both print and electronic), including Pierian Springs, The Sidewalk's End, Sequoia, and Poetry San Francisco. She has also published work under the last names of Eisner and Lagunas. Susannah now resides with her son, his weaseldog and a cat named Bert, in Sunnyvale, California, where she writes when and whatever she w

Background Information

Bachelor of Arts, Creative Writing, SFSU, 1989. Major influences include Flannery O'Connor, Raymond Carver, William Shakespeare, W.S. Merwin, and Sylvia Plath (to name a very few!). I was raised by writers and took up writing at a very young age, winning grand prize in a massive national essay contest (made available to 85,000 schools) when I was twelve, and publishing my first poems in literary magazines when I was seventeen. I learned early that a well-written piece was about the surest way to get my parents to look up from their typewriters and remember I was there.

Birth Place
Santa Clara, CA USA

Numerous publications and awards. Among the publications, Sequoia and The SFSU Review are the ones I am proudest of. Of the awards, being SFSU nominee for the Henfield Award while still an undergraduate was pretty cool. The Fund for Animals National Essay Contest was a great one to win as I got to spend three days in L.A. with Cleveland Amory, and go swimming at Joan Rivers' house (everything one might expect).

Additional Information

After eight years dedicated to being a new parent, then a single parent, a stepparent, and a single parent again, Susannah returned to writing in the fall of 2002 in an attempt to save her sanity. Since then her work has appeared in Sidewalk's End, Pierian Springs, The Muse Apprentice Guild, The Red River Review, The-Phone-Book, and Ken*Again, and Pebble Lake Review. Prior to the birth of her son and her subsequent adventures, Susannah's stories, poems, and essays appeared in such magazines as the SFSU Review (now Fourteen Hills), Poetry San Francisco, and Sequoia. -- "Hands That Will Not Work Together" originally appeared in The SFSU Review, and placed in the Story Magazine love story competition in the mid '90's, "Poison" in Sequoia, "Omphalos" in The Muse Apprentice Guild along with "Sweet Oblivion." "Sweet Oblivion" also appeared in The Sidewalk's End. Remote Control in Ken*Again, "For Mother Still Walking" in Pebble Lake... I think I am keeping up with myself here...
