Michael M. Weinstein

writer. educator. editor. content creator.

Welcome! I am, above all, a lover of language: an author, scholar, teacher, editor, translator, poet, and freelancer. I aim to empower students of many different backgrounds to express themselves with skill and confidence, and to help clients tell their stories in unique, impactful ways.

I received my Ph.D. in English from Harvard University (2017) and my M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Michigan’s Helen Zell Writers’ Program (2020), where I currently hold a Zell Creative Writing Fellowship and serve as an Assistant Editor at Michigan Quarterly Review.

Across all of my work, I strive to lift up the perspectives of the LGBTQ+ and disabled communities and to forge connections with people and institutions working for a more just world.
