Resa Alboher is one of the founding editors of St. Petersburg Review. She is also a Springhouse Journal editorial board member, a book scout, and a book coach/manuscript consultant. She’s a writer across genre whose publications include Roads & Kingdoms, Cosmonauts Avenue, Scapegoat Review, Black Heart Magazine, Rewire Me, Mango Salute, Have an NYC 2, Maintenant 5, and Radar Productions. She has books of fiction, essays, and poems in the works and a few screenplays hidden in the wings. She is a passionate, energetic, kind and patient writing teacher and a long-time traveler with perpetual culture shock who lived twenty years in Russia where she worked with the legendary Summer Literary Seminars St. Petersburg and taught American Writing at the Humanities University in Moscow. She is now in a kind of equivalent culture shock (but also a kind of cultural excitement) living back here in her native Los Angeles after so many years wandering the globe as she discovers the vibrancy of LA anew.
