Schraeder lives and works  in the rustbelt. Schraeder’s poems, stories, and essays have appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies, online and in print. After studying the double whammy “what-are-you-gonna’-do-with-that” combo, literature and ethics, Schraeder went on to earn an interdisciplinary doctorate emphasizing ethics and social justice issues.  After years of teaching everything from gender studies, humanities, and philosophy at a variety of colleges, Schraeder worked in the nonprofit sector, primarily in fundraising and development for grassroots organizations. Schraeder now works in the library and reads as much as possible (visit Goodreads to check out what Schraeder is reading now).   EF Schraeder’s world is also full of other interesting details and pursuits which didn’t make it into this bio. Go figure.
