I'm Sun Cooper, a writer, editor, and literary consultant who migrates between my home state, Oklahoma, and my adopted home, California. I've lived in a horse barn, a sea captain's house, and spent summers in Mexico, England, and Hungary. I've been in Baja the past months on a writer's residency, following the whale migration and working on a collaborative poetry and music project highlighting international women's literature and courage.
Under my belt, I've tucked a B.A. in English Lit, Harvard studies in Modern Masterpieces of World Literature, and over 18 years experience navigating the terrains of the publishing world. I am a member of the Certified Professional Writers and Editors, The Shakespeare Fellowship, a previous award-winning editor for the Nashville Gazette, a regular contributor to literary and travel magazines, an internationally published poet, consulting editor with My Two Cents Editing, editor of digital Waves, and Blackbird Fellow and consultant with A Room of Her Own Foundation.
With my amalgamation of Cherokee, French, Basque and American West ancestry, I strongly identify as a woman, mother, writer, and sojourner who asks for the wisdom of ancient paths while pioneering her own. I travel the West with my beloved son and pup.
“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will."
– Book of Jeremiah
