Shoshana teaches Creative Writing to young writers in after-school programs through her capstone company, Bard and the Beanstalk. She was a first reader for both Vestal Review and Inverted Syntax journals. In 2020, Shoshana brought together twenty-five authors, including NYT bestselling and Pulitzer Prize authors like Tommy Orange, to raise money for the Navajo Nation. The marathon reading raised over $26,000 in book sales for authors and $5,000 in donations for the Navajo Nation.

Outside of writing, Shoshana is a lifelong equestrian and studied Equine Science. In her free time, she enjoys teaching youth how to read and understand horses. She loves to hike, garden, and spend time with family. She lives outside of Denver in the foothills with her husband, children, and too many furry friends to count.
