SARAH SUKSIRI GRIEB
(2013 Graduate)

Sarah got her start writing poems about Thanksgiving dinner in the sixth grade. She desperately wanted to be an Olympic figure skater, but she settled for being a writer and now tries to make words do triple axles instead. At one point, she worked in a cake shop as a “cake consultant” and thought briefly about opening her own cafe-bakery, but the standard 4 a.m. start time for bakers convinced her otherwise.

Sarah moved from California to earn her MFA at Indiana University. She served as nonfiction editor of Indiana Review, spent three years trying to teach undergraduate students that poetry was cool, and wrote for a variety of publications before starting her career as a copywriter. A self-described “word designer,” Sarah likes copywriting that creates a cerebral and visceral experience for the reader.

She is currently the Content Director for Pivot Marketing.
