Savannah Brooks (she/her) works at the Loft both as a teaching artist and within the marketing department. She earned her MFA in creative writing from Hamline University and, while doing so, dabbled in all things publishing. In 2018, she finally managed to narrow it down to working as an associate agent for the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency, where she gets to fawn over kid lit for a living. As if she weren't busy enough, she compliments her literary life by instructing boxing and youth karate and training in mixed martial arts. When not in the gym or immersed in the world of words, she can be found on her motorcycle, lounging at one of Minnesota's 11,842 lakes, or sitting contentedly on the couch with her two rats, Boris and Hector.
