Corina Bittleston Calsing

C.B. Calsing was born and grew up in the small Central Coast town of San Luis Obispo, California. As a child, she spent long hours composing stories and plays. Half-way through her junior year in high school, she left to attend Cuesta Community College, where, after a few years of study, she received her associate of arts degree with honors. Following that, she transferred to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. There, she completed her bachelor of arts in English. She took a year off, traveled to Indonesia and Ireland, and then decided to return to school to become a certified English teacher, which she did. In 2002, fresh out of her studies, Mrs. Calsing and her future husband moved to New Orleans, where she began her career in education. In 2004, she married. Following her evacuation from Hurricane Katrina, Mrs. Calsing returned to New Orleans and began her master of fine arts degree in creative writing, fiction, at the University of New Orleans. She completed that in 2009, and since then she has been writing and publishing regularly. Now, she teaches middle school English and edits for a prominent e-book publisher. Her work has appeared in college literary journals, anthologies, guerrilla zines, and on Web sites. More information can be found at her Web site,, and at her blog,
