Seth Fischer


Seth has been teaching since he was sixteen, and he’s been doing it in some way ever since, at the middle school, high school, and college level. Having taught students from all over the world, in every age group, from nearly every socioeconomic status, he is a firm believer that every individual learns in their own way, and he thrives on working with students to develop the tools they need to succeed on their own path.

In a former career, Seth worked for various politicians in the Bay Area, until he rediscovered his love of writing and teaching. Since then, students he has tutored have succeed in getting into Ivy League universities, culinary academies, exchange programs in Tanzania, community college, or whatever best suits their needs. Outside of Fusion, he is a writer, editor, tutor, teacher, and professor. His writing has been awarded with multiple fellowships and awards, including a notable mention in The Best American Essays, inclusion in The California Prose Directory, and a fellowship from the Ucross Foundation. He has edited dozens of published books, and he also teaches creative and professional writing at Writing Workshops Los Angeles and Antioch University Los Angeles.

When he’s not working, Seth enjoys hiking, kayaking, being an activist, and Bananagrams. He takes his Oxford commas very seriously. He is a word nerd who thinks the sciences have a lot to teach people like me, and vice versa. Because of this, sometimes he might start talking about neuroscience when he’s teaching about creative writing.
