I'm Sun Cooper, a writer, editor, and literary consultant from the prairies of Oklahoma. I migrate along a deep map – studying cultures, literature, history; forging friendships of books and museums and people; deepening my spiritual practice; schooling my son and making citizenship of the wide world. I've lived in a sea captain's house and spent summers in England, Mexico, and Hungary. My son and I have lived on a horse farm and traveled in a vintage eco-renovated Airstream, visiting National Parks and studying historic places from our hometown to the West coast, a place we love so much we've adopted it as our second home. I regularly attend a writer's residency by the Pacific, working on literary projects featuring international women writers, advocates, and artists.
I have a B.A. in English Lit, Harvard studies in Modern Masterpieces of World Literature, and over 18 years experience in the writing & publishing world. I've volunteered with reading advocacy groups, such as the YMCA, and anti-human trafficking agencies and safe houses, such as Hadassah House. I'm a member of the Certified Professional Writers and Editors, Reedsy, The Shakespeare Fellowship, 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 the non-profit A Room of Her Own Foundation.
With my amalgamation of Cherokee, French, Basque and American West ancestry, I identify as a woman, mother, writer, educator, and sojourner who asks for the wisdom of ancient paths while pioneering her own.
“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
