Melanie Senn

Melanie Senn was born in Camden, New Jersey (the resting place of Walt Whitman), but was raised in California. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Latin American Literature from UCSB, and after living a couple years in Mexico, Argentina, and Chile, got her master’s degree in English. She had a 25-year teaching career, including 17 years at Cal Poly where she taught essay writing and argument. Now she dedicates her time to writing and audio storytelling and hanging out with her with her two teenage sons and their dad, musician Derek Senn.

Melanie hikes, surfs, and reads as much as she can get away with. She’s always preferred radio to television—especially public radio—and is thrilled to be interning at KCBX.
