The Starving Artist

Vanessa Knauf is a master’s candidate at Kennesaw State University in the Master of Arts in Professional Writing program. Her writing falls into the genre of creative non-fiction, with an emphasis on the creative. Vanessa grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, but also feels at home in Athens, Georgia, and Moscow, Russia. Her experiences abroad inspire and influence her stories.
