About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I just like meeting people from different cultures and traveling. The world is my home. As much as I try to get rooted in one place, I'll always be a citizen of the world. I've seen too much to put blinders on!

ABOUT ME

Currently I live in Coyoacan, Mexico City and and loving it. Before that I was in the states getting my MFA in Fiction Writing and before that I lived in Buenos Aires for four years. I just can't stay settled in the states!

I also teach Creative Writing for English speakers and Literary English for ESL students. Details on my website if that interests you: www.maryannullmann.com.

I love creative types and also people involved in social justice or environmental work. Love both urban and nature outings, live jazz, theater, lazy sunny days at the park. Am trying to get a roof terrace garden going, which I know next to nothing about, so ideas are good!

PHILOSOPHY

"Nothing bad happens to a writer. It's all material." --Garrison Keillor

"If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together." --Lilla Watson, Australian aboriginal activist
