ST (short for Esther) Schwartz is stoked to be joining the Writopia Lab team as an instructor in New York City. ST is a recent graduate from the School of Visual Arts with an MFA in Visual Narrative. During her time at SVA she wrote, illustrated, and self-published her first illustrated novel, Cautiously Pessimistic, a romantic comedy about Modern Orthodox Jews. In addition to instructing at Writopia Lab, ST teaches in the art department at her alma mater, Yeshiva University. While ST predominantly writes romance and slice-of-life, she’ll read almost anything, especially if there is a dragon.
