Christiane Buuck teaches composition, creative writing and business and professional writing. She earned an MFA from the University of Arizona and completed a creative writing Fulbright to France in which she walked and wrote about medieval pilgrimage routes.
Buuck's fiction and nonfiction have appeared in numerous literary publications including the Seneca Review, Cutthroat, Crab Orchard Review, Cimarron Review and The Sun. Her essay on Alopecia was a runner up in the spring 2015 Glamour magazine “Real Lives” essay contest and was published in the tablet edition. She co-authored a critical essay on the ways Shawn Tan uses the technique of masking in the backgrounds in his graphic novel The Arrival. She is currently finishing her first novel.
