Anjali Emsellem

Anjali Emsellem is from Berkeley, CA, and is a current student at Pitzer College studying creative writing and anthropology. She is interested in the intersection of arts-based social change, protest, storytelling, and the energizing effect of literary exchanges and relationships. Anjali is moved by the capability art has in manifesting autonomy and spirit under surveilled systems, and she was deeply inspired by her experience as a PEN America Prison Writing intern to continue her work in criminal justice reform.
