ADDITIONAL BIO BITS
Diana was born and raised in New York City. She attended the University of California at Berkeley and Cornell University where she studied environmental science and sustainable agriculture, two topics about which she is almost as passionate as her writing. After a few bi-coastal shuffles, she landed outside of Washington D.C. in 1996. She's been there ever since, writing, raising a family, a little bit of trouble, and the occasional vegetable. She received an M.A. in Writing from Johns Hopkins in 2018, has taught science writing at the University of Maryland and currently teaches creative writing with the New Directions Program at the Washington Center for Psychoanalysis. She blogs at dispatchesfromdonosti.online and has facilitated numerous writing groups. She also works as an editor with select clients.
