Molly Lazer | English
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Theatre and English from the University of Pennsylvania. From 2004 to 2008, I was an editor at Marvel Comics, where I worked on comic books such as Fantastic Four, Captain America, and New Avengers. I returned to the University of Pennsylvania to receive a M.S.Ed. in Reading, Writing, and Literacy in 2009. At this time, I also returned to teach at Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, where I have a decade of experience working with struggling readers on programs such as Seeing Stars and Verbalizing and Visualizing and serving as a mentor to other clinicians.
Today, in addition to my job as a high school Reading Specialist, I serve as a pro critiquer for Comics Experience, helping aspiring comic book writers finesse scripts for publication. In 2016, I received an M.F.A. in Creative Writing from Rosemont College. My short stories have been featured in numerous literary magazines. My first novel, Owl Eyes, will be published in Spring 2018.
