Ford, April

For almost 15 years, April Ford has helped people of all ages and abilities explore their passions and talents for creative expression. As a teacher, she encourages curiosity and playfulness, which are central to her own growth as a writer. Her notable publications include the novel Carousel, winner of the 2020 International Book Awards for LGBTQ Fiction, and “Project Fumarase,” winner of a 2016 Pushcart Prize. When April isn’t writing, she’s prone to snuggling with her two rescue cats, Ernie and Nicolas, and reading a book that brings light to her life.
