Jessica Lipaz

Jess is an educator and creative who is energized to join the Writopia Lab team as a writing instructor! Originally from Los Angeles, Jess moved to New York City in 2021 to earn her MA in Philosophy and Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. Throughout her degree, she dedicated herself to merging real life experiences with academic theorizing through her reflective and personalized writing style. The highlight of her graduate degree was the Arthur Zankel fellowship Jess was awarded to develop and facilitate a media and social change curriculum for 5th graders at P.S. 187. She loved working with students to explore storytelling through different mediums like zines, comics, collages, and even memes. Previously, Jess was the State News Editor of the country’s oldest-running student newspaper, The Daily Cardinal, housed at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where Jess got her undergraduate degrees in both Philosophy and Education Studies. Jess enjoys riding her bike, playing guitar, thrift shopping, journaling, and now, instructing the exploration of identity and voice through essays at Writopia Lab!
