Zoë Sessums is a writer and artist. She was raised in Gainesville, Florida, spent some formative years seaside in Massachusetts, cityside in Baltimore, had a short stint in the Bay Area, and has currently set up shop in New York City.
She attended Maryland Institute College of Art for two wonderful, eye-opening years. Majoring in Fiber and minoring in Creative Writing, she learned two- and three-dimensional approaches to many mediums while gaining the technical skills needed to fully investigate the possibilities of art.
Zoë graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida in December 2016, where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism with a concentration in art. While at UF, she was a stringer for the local Independent Florida Alligator; reported and edited for NPR-affiliate, WUFT News; wrote articles for Elite Daily; created and served as an editorial assistant for a digital health and wellness publication, the Student Body; and interned with The New Potato, New York Magazine's The Strategist, and Sight Unseen — aka food, shopping, and art.
Zoë currently freelances for Epicurious, Bon Appétit, Sight Unseen, and PopSugar. While her focus is primarily the written word, she is constantly excited and motivated by innumerable things. Various free time pursuits include: writing letters, making collages, running through parks, playing instruments, and daydreaming about cake.
